On Aug. 11, Florian Picasso performed a Livestream event to honor his late great-grandfather, Pablo Picasso, at the Villa Californie in Cannes. Fans can still experience the event by visiting Florian’s Facebook page at the following link.
The performance, which featured stunning visuals, architectural projections, and a light show, exceeded all expectations as millions watched the performance broadcast live. The Villa Californie is where Pablo Picasso created a number of his artistic masterpieces and is also where Florian Picasso produces much of his music.
The performance saw the premiere of a number of new tracks. In response to the event, Picasso stated,
“I’m very happy we were able to do something this special here in Cannes. Turning the entire house into a moving piece of art felt like the right way to pay tribute to what this place represents and the history it has. My team and I put a lot of work into this show and the response has been absolutely amazing so far, I can’t wait to let you all know what’s coming next!“– Florian Picasso
The Livestream was a 4-month-in-the-making undertaking and took a team of over twenty-five people and fifteen tonnes of gear to pull-off.
Florian Picasso is the great-grandson of the artist Pablo Picasso who adopted him from Vietnam after he was born. He has become a powerhouse in the dance music community and has recently released a number of tracks including: “Like You Do” ft Gashi & Ally Brooke, “Restart Your Heart” with GRX, and “Armageddon” with Timmy Trumpet.
