Wild! Community Engagement Project. 2020
- Project in Progress
I asked friends and neighbours to help me with the creation of a creature. Everyone got one part of the design and was free to use any materials they could find in and around their house to create their piece. Using recyclables or natural materials was more than welcome. No one knows how the other pieces look like nor what creature they are working on.
The art piece is already installed in my Little Outdoor Gallery - It's a giraffe!
This was the first of hopefully many more paint togethers in covid - times.
Would you like to join in the next round? I'm looking right now for new artists but also gallery hosts who would like to make a similar project on their house, fence in their window or as a street painting...
Let me know!
Do you like to know more about this project or to do something similar in your street, neighbourhood, city or country.
Please feel free to contact me. Let's transform our cities!

I love science – Do you too?
One day, talking to my friends about art and science, we found similar goals and motivations in understanding and describing the world around us. This is when the idea of combining both Art & Science in Workshops was born. Since then I put up some workshops in collaboration with scientists and organizations like Beakerhead or Contemporary Calgary, to convey interesting facts, for instance about our ecosystems or microcosm, and to process those knowledge creatively using unusual art techniques and materials. The workshops are for young and old, from art newbies to experienced artist - it's all about being creative and having fun.
Are you interested lo learn more about the workshops?
Follow me on social media and/or contact me and subscribe to the mailing list.
Looking forward to seeing you there next time!
