 Blue-Sky Painting

BY CLAUDE FRANCHETEAU
@ VOL 11 ON DEC 02, 2015

"I was lying on my back, near the river, my eyes staring into the deep blue of the sky. At the edge of my field of vision, I could see the rooves and chimneys of buildings, lost in the vastness and giving meaning to it. What I saw could be a way to paint."
Claude Francheteau paints contemporary and yet paradoxically classical skies.
With the help of modern acrylic paints and digital photography, depicting skies in the ancient way with a modern eye. A sincere kind of blue sky thinking." 
Claude Francheteau

How to paint a planet in 20x20 seconds

BY GEORGE DATSERIS
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 09, 2017

When George Datseris started Spray Paint Art, he was immediately hooked by the simplicity of it and how quickly you could get good looking results. In a few months of self-practice, he got better and was soon even asked to display his artwork.

A few years and art exhibitions later, he decided to teach people about the art himself and hand over his excitement for the craft. To show how easy it can actually be, he decided to take the crisp format of PechaKucha to turn it into a tutorial on how to get started being creative with the spray cans and paint a planet - in less than 20x20 seconds!

On Personal Risk-Taking and Courage

BY MICHELLE CLAIRE
@ VOL 1 ON MAR 15, 2018

"Don't give up on your dreams, and give uncertainty a chance."

Michelle Claire shares stories about the risks that she has taken in her life, and that have brought her from San Antonio, Texas, to Washington, D.C. -- everything from white-river rafting, telling her mother she wanted to become an artist, and personal decisions about love and friendship. Speaking on PechaKucha has been on her bucket list for a long time-- and we're glad she took the risk, at PechaKucha Alexandria Vol.1

MATERIALS: LOCAL A Canterbury Paint Box

BY TATYANNA MEHARRY
@ VOL 38 ON NOV 08, 2018

Tatyanna Meharry is an artist, potter and ceramics teacher. Practicing ceramics in a mindful manner with resources that are not renewable is a challenge for any potter and Tatyanna creates her work with this in mind. Firmly believing in the tradition of making objects with their own unique functions that are treasure not trash. In this PechaKucha talk Tatyanna will talk about her journey through the Canterbury landscape collecting and sampling local materials which she uses to create a unique paintbox of colour and texture that grounds her forms integrally in the local landscape.
