Maikel Mei, well known regular reader of this blog, musician and collector, is also a nose flute painter, as we already had the opportunity to show notably here, here and there.
Maikel has entered a long process and huge work: browsing the History of Art, by painting 10 series of 4 pictures (40 paintings altogether!). Each series will be exploring a selected era or culture, as a tribute to its style(s). The frames are 40x30cm large, and worked with acrylic paints.
What's the link with nose flute? Each painting will figure an elephant, and you'll discover that his head is the exact profile of a Weidlich & Lohse Nasenflöte, the famous "Swan logo" nose flute.
Maikel will probably have comments to add to each series, so, don't miss them in the "comments" part of this post, at the end of it. Also, don't hesitate to click on the pictures to magnify them, and get the full quality of the details.
