After the huge success of his last livestream from the Villa Californie in Cannes, showcasing the house with impressive architectural projections and special effects, Florian will once again delight his fans with a very special event.

Florian will give people around the world the unique opportunity to see the inside of the villa during this exclusive event, made possible in partnership with Pioneer DJ. On February 20th, the great-grandson of Pablo Picasso will host a livestream performing on the latest gear from Pioneer DJ, from the living room of the villa, which used to serve as Picasso’s painting studio. For this occasion, and for one night only, the room will be transformed back to its original state to resemble what it looked like when Pablo was working there, filled with paintings, sketches, and sculptures.

During Florian’s 90 min set, artist Cyril Kongo will simultaneously paint an artwork beside him. With Florian being adopted from Vietnam by the Picasso family and Cyril Kongo being of Vietnamese origin as well, both artists have a very strong connection to the country. This is why they decided to collaborate with Maria Bravo and Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Foundation on this special project. Thanks to Pioneer DJ, Kongo will use the CDJ 3000 as canvas reimagining the player as a one of a kind design. The piece created by Cyril during Florian’s set will be auctioned and all the profits will go to an orphanage in Vietnam. The painting will later be handed over to its buyer during a Global Gift Gala.

About Florian Picasso

Picasso is no stage name; Florian is the great-grandson of the mighty Pablo, adopted by the Picasso family after being born in Vietnam. He’s synonymous with a high-octane style of EDM that focuses on larger-than-life, unrelenting riffs and raw textures and is squarely focused on the dancefloor. Florian Picasso is a powerhouse in the world of dance music and has recently signed to Universal Music. Releasing ‘Like You Do’ ft Gashi & Ally Brooke on Universal and ‘Restart Your Heart’ with GRX on STMPD RCRDS, Florian proves that he really is capable of anything. Recently taking livestreams to the next level with his incredibly well-crafted productions and out-of-this-world light shows, Florian definitely still has a lot to share with the world.

About Cyril Kongo

Urban artist above all, Kongo is part of the first generation of French graffiti artists. Committed and revolutionary he was instrumental in defending graffiti as a school of fully-fledged art. Indeed when the painter talks about his discipline he evokes its technical and visual complexity and he describes it as a “savoir-faire”. Calligraphic abstraction, fluid lines and spontaneity allied with a committed and clear purpose made him an unprecedented artist. Cyril Kongo is mastering his urban vocabulary in order to achieve his vision. He is trying to highlight the cultural richness from the ancient technics throughout his own knowledge.
