He has a PhD and many years of experience with writing and handling contracts. But he also has a huge passion for art. So what do you do when you have a big brain, business acumen and a flair for art? What not many peeps would do: create you own company to manage and promote young artists.

Borgia Art was founded by Cesare Borgia, an Italian Dottore who has been living in Zurich for many years now. Cesare has always loved art, up to the point that he decided to be a Mecenate for lesser known, yet very talented, people with a gift. For example, he discovered graffiti artists Cacao Rocks and Sonke while wandering the trendy districts of Athens.

The 3-day show, the first one by Borgia Art, is taking place in Zurich. After a successful first day dedicated yesterday to Cacao Rocks, today’s featured artist is Clelia Catalano, who will be in da house to greet and meet you guys! The third and final day – on Wednesday 5th October – is dedicated to the pretty optical ladies of Greek street artist Sonke.
