ATN visited the playground of the rich and famous, Monaco and found the most amazing treats in Cannes!
These were no ordinary sweets – these sweets were wrapped in the flags of various countries, ‘sweet-flags’. The sculptures are the creation of self taught artist Laurence Jenkell, who based the artwork on her favourite subject; sweets. ‘Having started out by painting pictures, Laurence Jenkell developed a new technique: she inlayed resin-glazed-canvas with real sweets’.
On approach to the centre of Cannes, we spotted giant versions of the fabulous art work, which range from two to five metres in height. There are 55 pieces, 20 of which represent the countries of the G20, dotted all over Cannes.
Sweeties will be on display at the Hotel Carlton in Cannes, until the 5th of November 2011. A treat not to be missed.
