New Orleans Flowers Legacy Artworks by Yuri Catania for the Sister Cities New Orleans & Ascona Switzerland


Catania has just completed his first session of the artist residency in New Orleans, Louisiana, for the photographic project JAZZ OFF THE WALL for JazzAscona. His intense work period, closely interacting with some of the most prominent musicians and artists in the global jazz scene, led him to create a new series of surrealist paintings through his photography and collage titled: New Orleans Flowers Legacy Artworks by Yuri Catania for the Sister Cities New Orleans & Ascona Switzerland.



The works, bursting with bright colors, characters, and tropical flowers, represent the unique culture of New Orleans. This culture is a blend of values and traditions, from the royal French influence to the vibrant Creole culture and ancient African traditions. This multiethnic experience has sparked Catania's imagination towards surreal worlds where beauty, honor, and the values of traditions stand out strongly, defending a city that rejects conformity in favor of preserving and passing down its popular traditions through parades, costumes, music, and gospel.
