We create a space in which creativity can flourish. Our mission is to inspire those who enter our zone to get in touch with their innate creativity, their flow, let the walls come down and give collaboration a chance, set aside egos, let go of judgements and get past your conditioning, we wish to spark a colourful trajectory in an individual’s journey, and by doing so we hope to create a new wave of playful, collaborative visual arts within our community and within the festival culture. Metaphorically speaking, to plant seeds which may grow into trees, thereby creating a creative ecosystem in which we can thrive and regenerate, together.
We use paint as a tool for this mission. Simply Colour. Paint. Paint together. Paint on one another. Paint, and start to understand the gap between what you can visualise and the physical realm in which you can materialise these visions, push the limitations of our 2D/3D realm. Painting is in our DNA, an evolutionary step, depiction, patterns, with paint we can communicate without words. The most important things in life can be difficult to describe with words. So just feel. Use your hands, your wrists, your fingers, your whole body, center yourself on your brush, your line. Align with energy.
It is well known that the artistic impulse is trodden down upon by our society, starting in school with the pressure to study subjects that can more easily gain you economic wealth. Of course, some continue anyway on their artistic journey because the impulse is so strong that they cannot resist it, the urge to create pushes them through all the challenges and all the obstacles, which are numerous on this path. But time spent conforming to societal norms and pressures more often than not crushes the inner artist.
With our space, we wish to reignite that candle inside you, which you may not have tended to since childhood. Awaken that child. Paint, however unskilled you might judge yourself as. Paint, despite all those voices telling you not to. Paint. Choose a colour, stroke. So simple. Be playful. Get in the flow. Allow yourself to be in the moment.
With our Collective Mural concept which we materialise in music festivals, we bring people together, with a common goal, to colour in the canvas. We provide a hand-painted linear design, giving a unified cohesive structure on which everybody can play. It is a constantly evolving project, as more and more hands do their part, layers upon layers, and the canvas really becomes alive as the sun goes down and the space is saturated with the surreal glow of the UV light. An entrancing magnet, beacon in the night, the ravers come like moths to a flame!
This space creates a platform for people to interact on a different level, and creates a zone in which people can rest from dancing and enjoy a visual feast. Aside from a fascinating image to entrance the eyes, we find it equally important that we create around it a comfortable place to relax, to chill, to rest the busy mind, and make people feel at home. Nourish each other, look after each other, be together. We could call it an ‘Art Healing Space’.
We want to collaborate with others to grow this space.
With respect to psychedelic culture, we all know that we can lose ourselves sometimes during these festivals, especially those without solid social support. We create this space not only as a fun painting, but with a deeper role for healing. It’s a safe haven. This space can be a point of focus. It’s a great therapy to plug into the meditative symbolic work of painting. This is a space for introspection, alongside each other. Alone, together. To feel part of a greater whole, by working on this collective mural that transcends divisions and words. To take a moment to breathe, find solace in the brushstrokes. Revive the soul. Connect. Restore energy.
