ILLUMINARTI 2020  - A CONSPIRACY OF ARTISTS

Individual works

  • We trying to take a step away from your popular “Street Art: to create something unique and not so time consuming.

  • We are focusing on a series of wall works that will be cut into shapes.  These will be spaced from the walls with blocks.

  • Think giant insects weta, tiki, fungi, organic shapes, birds.

  • Think layers and layering, a series of birds mounted and overlapping each other for example.

  • Think cut outs
     

The substrate.

12mm treated plywood that we will supply.
Once we ascertain your involvement and wall you can send us through a shape outline  for cut out.

You can arrange to cut your own shape prior if you are handy !

The Size:

  • Some pieces can be full sized sheets 1200 x 2400 .

  • Some are larger walls and will be 2 x sheets.

  • Most will be half sized sheets. (Say 1200 x 1200 as a half size)

Smaller series of works:

We will have a series of giant skateboard shapes which will be approx. 1200 by 400 – These will hang together and will be multiple artists.
 

 Larger works /murals

There is one wall which will be a collaborative mural. The space to paint in this will be approx. 5000 x 3000. It has mural director Sam Allen assigned to this wall.
You can also participate in this smaller activity on the day should you get time or want a break from you other piece.
