Public Art – Cosmic Forest by Tasha Whittle
June 28, 2014 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
FREE EVENT as part of Colour Box Studio’s Public Art Program.
Tasha Whittle is an Artist and Illustrator from Manchester, UK. “Warped and wonderful her illustrations stretch onto the walls of massive buildings and shrink onto minuscule bird-mobiles. She has an affinity with the natural and the supernatural, a penchant for paint and detail. Exploration within experience, music and cosmics are what make Whittle tick.”
COSMIC FOREST by Tasha Whittle
For the Colour Box Studio alleyway wall I will be painting a character from the Cosmic Forest. The Cosmic Forest is a world parallel with ours filled with weird and wonderful characters, landscapes and adventures. Anyone of us can enter into the Cosmic Forest via a Gatekeeper, you just need the right key…
Accompanying the mural I will be offering the public the chance to have their own Cosmic Forest character portrait for a gold coin donation. Through my special glasses I can see your Cosmic Forest self in all its beautiful, colourful, weird, glory. Accompanying me will be Jazz Pianist Victor Dilks as there has to be music playing whilst I draw, otherwise the magic is lost.
Weather depending, portraits and electrical equipment don’t work well in the rain!
