An Affordable Alternative to Retail Chain Art

PRESENTED ON NOV 23, 2015
IN MAASTRICHT @ VOL 27

“We live in a global village but it turns out that all houses in the global village look the same, and I was kind of bothered with that.”

In An Affordable Alternative to Retail Chain Art from PechaKucha Night Maastricht’s 27th volume, Presenter Tom Luyten discusses one of his biggest issues when it comes to home decoration. Bothered by the fact that we live in a world full of living rooms with the same picture hanging above the couch, he created an alternative. Watch as Tom tells us how to create art that is both unique and affordable, without settling for lesser quality and still provide the artist with a sufficient compensation.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, April, 21, 2016.

Altering Skins - Surface to Form

BY ROBERT OPPECKER
@ VOL 4 ON MAR 09, 2013

There are 3 generations of artists in Robert Oppecker's family. His father was a prolific abstract artist in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Robert is a scupltor and silversmith. And his son is studying graphic design at VCU. Robert's own work focuses on form, line, and volume, but because of the silver medium he does not get to do much with color on the surface. To capture this "intergenerational energy", Robert, along with the help of his son, Michael, explore ways to meld the surface treatments with the scupltural expressions.

Discovering The Value of Graphic Design

BY ELMA GIAVASES
@ VOL 4 ON APR 05, 2018

It is no easy take to create art, to somehow materialize and express the thoughts in your head. Creating art expressing the thoughts in someone ELSE's head is something else entirely. Elma Giavases' early life and subsequent travels around the globe have given her a unique perspective on design and branding, and she now brings that expertise to the Kalispell community as a graphic designer with Highline Design.

After all, "great designs delight".
