Well, this project was certainly different and fun! Safewalls asked a variety artists to create original art posters inspired by specific Cirque du Soleil shows… mine is based on the show KA. This is 1st Cirque I’ve ever seen and it was pretty awe inspiring, I was most impressed by the dancers and performers. I began working on it the same night I saw the show.. while it was still fresh in my mind. For my piece, I adopted the technique I used in my alice and wonderland theme illustration as shown here ~ using ink and graphite.
If you happen to be in Las Vegas this week, there will be an opening Thursday Aug 4th @ Trifecta Gallery with the posters on display and silk screen print signing. I’ll be in attendance with Casey Weldon, see his piece here. Every month, a new poster is revealed by another artist! some of the past can be seen on the Safewalls.org. Look forward to seeing what comes next! :)
