French artist Christian Pendelio is well-known for his dreamy and whimsical depictions that express love and hope. He often combines his distinct, stylized characters with comical allegories leaving viewers to ponder. In Love Ballad in A Pink Paris, Pendelio delineates a condensed, illusionary, and very pink version of Paris. A young couple deeply in love floats down a river on a ship that appears to also be a pair of bright red lips, symbolising their passion. The sailor delicately holds on to a bouquet of daisies and roses, gazing into his partner's eyes as she steers the lips-ship. Christian Pendelio's use of a fuschia and rose colors, motifs of romance, and charm of the characters emphasize the stereotype that Paris is the city of love.
He focuses on the magic of childhood tales and how we should treasure them throughout our lives.
