Raul Meel / News

10th August 2023 in Kohila Tohisoo manor at the opening of Italian, Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian graphic art

Italian ambassador  Daniele Rampazzo gave a letter to Raul Meel from the president of  Vicenza UNESCO club:


On behalf of the UNESCO Club of Vicenza, I am delighted to announce the acceptance of Raul Meele’s work, in the context of the exhibition, of prints Mirror – Face to Face 2023, held in Villa Caldogno, one of Andrea Palladio’s masterpieces inscribed on the UNESCO heritage list in Caldogno, Vicenza.


Raul Meel is regarded as one of the most distinctive and representative European artists of our time, and not just the pride of the Baltic States.


We are honoured to welcome such a powerful artist to an exhibition that aims to represent one of the Club’s main UNESCO ambitions each year: artistic dialogue and the meeting of different cultures in a spirit of brotherhood and peace. This is what inspired the founders of UNESCO.

The focus of the research exhibition Thinking Pictures, which has been prepared in cooperation with the Zimmerli Art Museum in the United States since 2016, was supposed to be a dialogue between Baltic and Moscow artists in the 1970s and 1980s.

Tallinn Art Hall, exhibition “We’ll Be Right Back, You Just Keep Playing!”.

Having a child means dedicating a large part of your life to them. And, if you happen to be an artist, the inner child sneaks into your creation in every possible way: as a co-creator, entrusting their fantasies to you or sublimating your own tenderness and care. But not only that. Although Estonian art usually tends to be rather serious, you can indeed find joyful play in it – not only in the subject matter of the works of art, but also in their structure and development, their lines, colours and volumes. It is also found in the artist’s idea, to which the viewer adds their own experience, because it is very important for an art lover to be willing to play along! Only then can we join Raul Meel, the most venerable and one of the oldest artists in this exhibition, in saying that “the precondition for eternal life is noticing the beauty in playing” Interview with the curator Tamara Luuk.
