Creativity of Alex Doll is largely devoted to the theme of flowers. A young, but unusually talented artist, created a whole author's project called “Flowers. Impression". An unusual approach to art allowed him to combine painting with music and choreography. The project is a unique collection of works created from a whole series of stylistically decorated flowers.

Here they are not only on the paintings, but on sculptures, on mannequin from the Swiss Fashion Week in Switzerland with the support of the Kodra Swiss Foundation, a Swiss chalet from the Museum Swissminiatur and many other objects, which were transformed from simple and ordinary objects into real art works. This project is a completely different world filled with harmony, in which emotions bloom infinitely beautifully. Here, the flower symbolizes the fragility of everything  material and makes us think about the fact that the world is fragile and needs to be treated with care.

The project of Alex Doll & M. Micallef is the brightest creative collaboration of the current year in contemporary art. This is a truly unique tandem, which led to the limited edition of the tender, floral and enchanting fragrance Ananda. This perfume is a real pearl of M. Micallef's rich collection. Its name translates from Hindi as “absolute bliss” and, perhaps, it was difficult to come up with a more capacious word for this sophisticated aroma bouquet.

This perfume is a real personification of femininity and refinement, it is hypnotic and attractive, its notes are balanced and harmonious. A limited version of the perfume is presented in an exclusively designed bottle that has become the perfect reflection of its philosophy. The recognizable floral print of Alex Doll seems to have made the final touch, completing the image of the fragrance.

Of course, it was difficult to find a better place for presentation than the tropical paradise of the botanical garden, which is immersed in blooming magnolia and azaleas. Here, the version of the perfume will be presented by Martina Micallef herself. Alex Doll will be the entertainer of the upcoming event.

A separate surprise for the guests of the presentation will be a video performance by A. Abdukarimov, an artist of the State Ballet of Berlin. His body, painted with floral patterns in Doll's recognizable style, with his dance will try to express the entire delightful palette of flower emotions.

Also, the guests of the evening will have a unique opportunity to learn how to paint perfume bottles by passing a master class from Alex Doll himself. The works of the painter presented on the project are recognized by connoisseurs and critics both in the author’s homeland and in European countries. Alex is a master whose painting is extremely popular in the circles of picky collectors of Europe and connoisseurs of modern art.
