"The Rich and The Righteous"

“To be rich is glorious!” - So goes the legendary quote of modern China's late leader, Deng Xiaoping. Whether he actually did make the statement is debatable but what does it matter  – he could very well have spray painted it on the grounds of Tiananmen Square as millions of young, wealthy Chinese turned their existence into living axioms of this sentiment. Their lifestyles might cry out to good old Europe: Have some fun! Stop thinking about tomorrow, if only for a moment! Paint your poodle’s nails in pink, and why not yours too! 抓住每一天 (Carpe diem)!

What is wealth all about in the 21st century? Are there different connotations of wealth and luxury between the East and the West of this globalized world? How could it be right, or even righteous, to be rich?

The Shanghai based Liu Dao 六岛 art collective is proud to present some of their latest artworks for the first time on the beautiful island of Mallorca, each one of these sparkling LED visions containing within itself an answer to those crucial questions of our time. Celebrating the glorious is unique to the human kind! Thinking about how to best spend one’s days on earth, surrounding oneself with only the exquisite, the beautiful, the luxurious – this is what makes life worth living. Who wouldn’t want to cherish the good moments? Even if they are somebody else’s, and lived vicariously through magazines, television, the internet, or the twinkling colorful diodes of LED art.

island6 expresses our right to be rich (and the right to absolutely love it!) as cutting-edge electronic art, just as Gemelli Turzi turns it into sleek, stylish clothes. So take a moment to celebrate with us the beautiful fusion of art and style while indulging in the admiration of hot legs and glimmering curves. You, too, will surely feel like a million bucks!
