Art of the Pencils

@ VOL 164 ON MAY 28, 2019

Artist Vasco Mourão unveils an ongoing series of artworks on paper that derive from personal recollections of Tokyo’s urbanscape. Drawing in a stream of consciousness with memories flowing and intermingling, he strives to knit together fragments of the urban skin and details from selected locations around the city. In doing so, each drawing can be traced back to a unique place in Tokyo and how he remember/draws its features.

Vasco Mourãoは東京の街並みの1ページから新たなアートを生み出す魔術師。記憶をたどりながら東京の多種多様な街並みを再構築して作り上げた作品一つ一つに、彼の東京への想いがぎゅっとつまっている。作品を紐解けば、彼の東京の街並みの見方が垣間見えるかもしれない。

A Theory on Doodling

"I never felt that I could be an artist, but somehow doodling opened the door for me. It was a way to do art without expectations, and from there I gave myself permission to belong in the category of artist. That was freedom for me."In A Theory on Doodling from Williamsburg Vol. 12, Pam Woodson finds herself drawn to doodling in a couple of very specific situations. Not considering herself as an "artist", she initially used doodling as a door to create art without expectations. Pam found her path to becoming an artist. Through Pam's doodling research we could all learn self-improvement through doodling.Pen and paper please.

Doan Linh Hand Written Letters

“I use handwritten letter to listen and encourage people…” In "Hand Written Letters", from PechaKucha Night Ho Chi Minh City Vol.9, Doan Linh started "Letter to Angel", a non-profit organisation committed to bringing the lost art of handwritten letters back to people in Vietnam and around the world. In this presentation, she shares with us her vision behind L2A and what she hopes to achieve through it. It would be unfair to mention that she’s only 20 years old because her thoughts are much bigger the tiny number! Grab some paper and a pen, you might want to hand write your loved ones a letter right after listening to her talk.
