A creative journey, a collaborative group of artist – The result, a collection of inspirational and thought provoking images and artwork inspired by our reality, our dream and our community.As a visual artist – I have always been attracted to brilliant colors, almost gaudy. I feel as though the life of the color corresponds to the brilliancy of it. I love Middle Eastern combinations of teal, fuchsia, orange – South America’s use of cerrilium blue, lime green and yellow – the Orients fascination with the beauty of red, the serenity of blue.As a child, tribal painting, body and cave, fascinated me – the organic use of line and shape was simple yet brilliant to me.I wanted to bring all of these elements together in one project – this project, the human canvas, gives us a chance to be the artist, canvas and observer all at once. The exploration of how colors on the skins surface are just that color – once painted, no matter what color, we all become the same in the unity of paint – a tribe, so to speak.Would it not be amazing, if we all allowed ourselves to be as brilliant without the paint? One world, One tribe – The Human Canvas. Our similarities outweigh the differences
