From Behind Curtain 2, we are excited to announce that ‘Alt 164’, the teaming of the creative energy of Nelson Franco and Cristina Vanegas, have commenced their challenge. From their North Lake studio, Nelson and Cristina will create 30 artworks from mid April to mid May. ‘Alt 164’ describe their challenge:
The 30x30x30 is a great challenge in our artistic career. It is a bold look at the hectic present. A society on the move, full of changes and developments that seem not letting up…
It is a unique opportunity to prove in a new work context, where mental and physical agility are key players.
As a team we want to incorporate the vision about art that we have as individual’s: merging personal reflection about the city and the beings that inhabit it.
Our goals are to complete 30 pieces of art that make people “wake up” in another notion of reality and generate reflection on the viewer and also to successfully integrate our ideas and explore different techniques.
We both definitely have a very deep conscience to work in our social projects especially if they involve an entire community and seek to promote childhood.
The 30x30x30 is a reunion with the artistic endeavor. It is a gift to the children from “Treetops Montessori School”. Finally, it is a courageous and innovative way to make artistic calls.
