A kind of glamour surrounds the expressive paintings of Leon Löwentraut. Leon always has big showing offs. Once he arrives in a Helicopter, once in a coach or an old-timer. The only 23 years old painter has the exhibitions “Leonismo” in the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice, in “Kunstforum” in Vienna, “Bayerische Nationalmuseum” in Munich and “Ecole du Louvre” in Paris. His works can be seen in the Gallery Gerhard Braun in Carrer San Feliu 10 in Palma until September.
The only 8 years young Manuel Diaz from a small village near Madrid is another wonder child. His parents posted his paintings in Internet and the Hippie Royals Gallery in Miami sold some of them for a high price. His cheapest painting costs 3000 Euro; the most expensive 10.000 Euro.14 of his paintings from his series “Diamentes” can be seen in the Gallery N12 on Passeig Mallorca.
