Ocean of Art

@ VOL 21 ON MAY 18, 2017

"To me, my art now tells a story between nature and humanity, a push and pull, love and betrayal type of visual dialogue that exposes my emotional connections with the ocean."

In Ocean of Art from Pechakucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 21, we hear from Scott Denholm, a contemporary ocean artist. His art focuses on the ocean and explores the emotional relationships that we have with it. Through his life as a surfer and conservationist, he has sought to capture semi-abstract moments that resonate with people from all walks of life. His paintings are also created with environmentally friendly art materials. In his presentation, he wants to focus on these emotional relationships and explore them through his new series, "Elevation".

Stand Up Paddling


SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. (in Swedish)

Nostrum Collective

@ VOL 9 ON JUN 05, 2014

Nostrum Collective is a photographic project to show the relationship between a group of friends formed on the sea for surfing and the Sea through our photo shoot. Every kind of relationship with the sea is accepted, whether it be surfing, swimming, fishing or diving- or simply looking into that magical blue water. Nostrum Collective would like to be a high quality photographic diary with a very deep Ligurian and Mediterranean identity to share with all people who love the sea and the many beautiful moments it gives to us.

Una questione meridionale

@ VOL 2 ON FEB 21, 2016

La mia attenzione è rivolta maggiormente all’identità di luoghi soggetti a progressivi mutamenti e trasformazioni, con l’uso di differenti forme narrative. Quello che mi interessa è mettere in relazione le inevitabili forme di alterazione del territorio da parte dell’uomo con la capacità di mutare il paesaggio. Di farsi esso stesso paesaggio.

A Figure Explosion, Mechanical Sumo Wrestlers, and Kosice Gets Covered

Presentations Don "datadub" Kratzer updates us (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92) on his five year mission that kicked off while attending the San Diego Comic Con back in 2007, and then lead to some terrific toy/figure collaborations with a host of creators.  Kenichi Asano is a sculptor, but not in the traditional sense, even though his very modern-looking works are all produced using traditional Japanese construction techniques. The presentation (also from PKN Tokyo Vol. 92) is in Japanese, but the visuals really do all the talking. Posters Today we highlight two posters that were added to the Tumblr blog yesterday, for PKN Kosice Vol. 18 (held last week) and the upcoming PKN Kosice Vol. 19 (June 16). Both were produced by Jozef Tušan, and you'll find more of his work in this Flickr photostream. Photos and report We continue our coverage of PKN Kosice, and so along with those posters you'll also find plenty of photos from previous events in these Facebook photo galleries. We're sure Vol. 18 will be added soon, and here are a few words from PKN Kosice team member Miso Hudak on the event that was:Volume 18 was part of the local street art festival "Use the City." We love to cooperate with meaningful projects, and we earned great synergy from this partnership. It was an open-air event, and even though it was cold with strong winds, we had almost 150 people in audience. Volume 18 was absolutely an international event, with Russian, Italian, German, Moldavian, and French projects presented in English. There was a French guy speaking Slovak, and a Slovak dance group speaking in the language of bodies.And here's what to expect at this month's Vol. 19:Volume 19 will be a special event, where art communities from the second and third largest cities in Slovakia (Kosice and Presov) will join together in the middle. The distance between these cities is only 30 kilometers, and the event will be in an old brick factory. The lineup for Volume 19 will be completely opposite of Volume 18's, as we are going to celebrate local organizations, which bring culture and art to both of our cities.Calendar What's on the agenda tonight? How about the following events: PKN Louisville Vol. 8, PKN Chicago Vol. 22, PKN Sydney Vol. 21, and PKN Katowice Vol. 7. Tomorrow (June 6), look to the following cities: PKN Coquitlam Vol. 7, PKN Bielefeld Vol. 10, PKN Genoa Vol. 2, PKN Aarhus Vol. 13, and PKN Edmonton Vol. 13.
