A new month, a new artist residency!
In Mission To Art’s latest artist residency we joined forces with Italian-Japanese artist Nico Miyakawa. With a portfolio primarily formed by hand drawn sketchbooks filled with dreamy scenarios, his work takes the viewer through a rich and detailed interpretation of reality.
Together we created a 22 pieces of limited edition print, experimenting on new methods to develop the films. We put the digital process aside and dove into an artisanal approach for all stages of printing, letting Nico paint directly onto the acetate films to produce the screens. Seven acetate film sheets for seven levels of colors, harmoniously overlaid, mixed and bound together to bring the print to life. Here is the result: a palm tree of such vivid, bright colors – that only serigraphy can recreate – on a sky blue background previously hand-painted by the artist. A print that portrays exotic moods, tropical landscapes and the warm light of a summer that is not over yet. If you want to get the vibes and bring them into your home, you can find the print on our online shop!
And with Nico Niyakawa we didn’t stop there! The collaboration went a whole new level when he became a member of the BeeOzanam family. He created “Nico’s Room”, a space in the former industrial offices fully painted by the artist, where you can get be surrounded by Nico’s characters. A 360 degrees experience we suggest you don’t miss.
BeeOzanam opens its doors to the public on the 3rd and 4th of October 2020 in occasion of the Beepop Fest, see you there!
