Krakow, Poland
————————
Even though we are flying into Krakow, we won’t actually be visiting the city. Instead we are focusing on the rich and lucious nature surround Krakow. Which will be at its most green at this time of the year. We’ll be visiting places like Bebło, Wisła, and Zawoja. Small towns, scattered around the south of Krakow, even bordering up on the Czech and Slovakian borders. Along the road trip we will be visting mines, caves, national parks, mountains, and anything other natural beauty.

Artist: Kristin Texeira
—————————
Kristin Texeira paints to provide proof – for herself and others – of existing in certain moments in time. Capturing, documenting and preserving memories. Through the use of paint, collage, sketching and writing, she is creating tangible maps of her experiences. Through subtle shifts in colors or ranges of contrasting colors, she attempts to create something familiar and – at the same time – something entirely elusive and intangible. Like the forgotten word on the tip of your tongue. Color is what Kristin sees when she hears music, tastes wine, or reads the titles of short stories. It is how she decipher new places when traveling, and the people she meets along the way.

Newfoundland, Canada
————————
Newfoundland is an island located on the eastern coast of Canada. A vast land with a relatively small population, full of rich history and natural wonders. A historic place where European Vikings landed over a thousand years ago. Together with stunning coastlines, breaching whales, icebergs and some of the most incredible skyscapes you’ll ever see. For her trip, Kristin will be exploring the northern east coast of the island, adventuring from the capital St John’s to places like Trinity, Grates Cove and Terranova National Park. A road trip like no other.

Artist: Laura Berger
—————————
Most of Laura Berger’s work is focused on the idea of finding novelty and adventure in everyday life. Laura’s work is packed with a warm and sensible palette of colours and life experiences. She is finding an endless amount of inspiration in rituals, symbols, nature, dreams, travelling and the quest for self-development. Through careful composition and skilful use of gouache and acrylic, she manages to put all of her inspiration down on paper and canvas in her complete own visual universe.

More work of Laura can be found on her website: www.lauraberger.com


Lima, Peru
————————
Lima has a history dating back to 1535, after being founded by Francisco Pizarro. Nowadays the city is a curious mix of high rise condos built alongside pre-Columbian temples, colonial architecture and large but orderly slum areas. The art scene moves in between historic museums and galleries showcasing the contemporary side of Lima. And on top of it all the Peruvian gastronomy has always been an essential aspect of life in the capital of Peru. This is America Latina at its best.

Artist: Morcky
—————————
If you walked around on the streets of Amsterdam in the early 2000’s, you will have undoubtedly been exposed to the works of Morcky. He painted his signature boombox speakers relentlessly all over town. Originally Morcky comes from Italy, but Amsterdam quickly became a second home. Morcky grew up with graffiti, and afterwards fell in love with illustration and animation. His greatest daily struggle, according to himself, is to combine all of these disciplines. Characteristically for his work are his expressive pen lines, capturing the candid beauty of his surroundings.

More work of Morcky can be found on his website: www.morcky.com


Belgrade, Serbia
————————
Adventurous, proud, vocal and courageous are some of the adjectives to describe the capital of Serbia: Belgrade, or Београд in it’s original language. While the city and the country as a whole is working on it’s future, it is fitting in it’s chaotic past. Blocks of socialists architecture are standing next art nouveau masterpieces. Along the Sava river you can find the Savamala quarter, which has recently gone from ruin to resurrection and can be described as the city’s creative hub.

The Jaunt #032

Artist: Collin van der Sluijs

Destination: Lastovo, Croatia

Dates: 22 - 28 March

The last prints are now available in our Print Archive

032-print-tictail


Artist: Collin van der Sluijs
—————————
Four years after sending Collin van der Sluijs to Porto, Portugal, we are sending out Collin on his second trip for The Jaunt. Collin is a versatile artist who works just as easily on canvas and paper as he does on walls. His work is best described as the personal pleasures and struggles in his daily life, translated to his own visual language. Since the last time we worked with him, Collin has had sold out shows with Vertical Gallery in Chicago, and painted murals all over the world.



A little word from Collin:
————————
“This time around, I did not know the destination of my trip. When I boarded my flight to Croatia I finally had some time to let it sink in, but still I had no clue what was awaiting me. After arriving in Split I went straight to the harbour to catch a catamaran which took me on a five hour trip to Lastovo island. From the start the nature and the serene quality of the island made the most impression on me, aside from the brightly lit sky at night. There is something to the simple life, where people don’t worry about stuff too much and don’t get involved in each others business. Visiting Lastovo felt like a small escape from reality.

Even though the people on the island live relatively secluded, they proved to be very hospitable. In their broken English, they asked me questions about what I was doing on the island, and they showed a lot of interest in my stories. With one local family I traded a drawing for a dinner, while the family told me everything about their family and the island’s history. It was a blessing to have the island almost completely to myself and sit on the mountain tops with some lunch and a sketchbook.

Every morning I would get up around six in the morning to start drawing along with the sunrise and the fishermen throwing out their nets in the sea. All of my experiences and all of the things I encountered are incorporated into one portrait. The colours are based on this faded mint green that I saw on many of the windows and the old red concrete bricks of which the houses were made.”

Artist: Monica Ramos
—————————

Born and raised in the Philippines, and currently residing in New York, Monica keeps a giant philodendron plant in her apartment to ward away homesickness. She combines a sense of wit and humor with beautiful and intricate watercolor paintings. The lush universe she creates, reflects much of our own lives, with themes touching on childhood, identity, nature, relationships, emotions and magic. We are proud to have Monica Ramos become a part of our Jaunt Forma series.



A little word from Monica
————————
“Growing up in Manila, a city not known for architectural feats, I always feel drawn to places with impressive and distinctive buildings. I wanted to see Jaipur, the Pink City, in the hopes of living out some romanticized travel fantasy. At times it was tough being a solo female traveller in India. You get a lot of stares and people take advantage when they know you’re not from around there.


I loved getting lost in the forts at the outskirts of the city and wandering around the markets in the old part of town. I was especially taken by the patterns that I saw everywhere, florals block printed onto bed sheets, mosaics made out of mirrors, muqarnas carved into ceilings, lattice screens made of sandstone, arched windows, handprinted blue ties. I admired both the order and the chaos. I also went to a block printing workshop in Bagru, a small town known for its textile printing, to try to learn a new skill that I could incorporate into this project for The Jaunt. It was inspiring to see all the different motifs of the Bagru textiles.


When I got back to New York, I bought a book about Islamic art and architecture, in an attempt to teach myself the basics of geometric art. The resulting paintings strayed from the rigid and precise tradition, but are a mix of a systematic approach to painting in a grid and my impressions of the city.”

A little word by Jean
————————
“A friend told me about Marfa just before my trip. She was ecstatic about it. That de nitely spiked my curiosity, and my further research certainly revealed it as a ‘one of a kind’ place. I expected a resourceful place, full of surprises, and my expectations were positively exceeded. There is a real sense of community that was very nice to be around and experience. I also really liked the scale of Marfa. It is quite small, surrounded by an incredibly vast landscape and seems to be a crossroads between other interesting locations around.


The sensation of travelling quite far to a remote location, which has a lot to offer, felt a bit like a treasure hunt. The dynamic in Marfa is very interesting, it’s a great mix of people, and the architecture is fantastic. The town also seemed to have its own sort of mythology, from the Marfa Lights, to Donald Judd, to the movie Giant, etc. I spent a lot of time drawing the old school cars, the houses and the desert landscape. For a French person from Brittany, it felt like I was a long way from home!



The Jaunt #029

Destination: Orcas Island, USA

029-endresult



Destination: Orcas Island
————————
The San Juan islands are tucked away in the north western corner of Washington State. It’s a three hour drive from Seattle and only just below the Canadian border. Orcas Island is the biggest of the island group and its horseshoe-shape provides a combination of rural and and hilly scenery, a stunning shoreline, and a series of hamlets. The Doe Bay Resort, where Joram will be staying, is an ideal retreat for an artist whose work is usually inspired by the urban city life.

This trip is made possible by the San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau.


A little word from Joram Roukes
—————————
“I was expecting Orcas Island to serve as a redemptive and refreshing break from ‘the grid’. As a kid I used to be in nature a lot more. Now, as an adult, cities and urban environments are of great fascination to me. I wanted to indulge in a peaceful and natural environment again, and briefly go back to those feelings from my childhood. I’ve seen more shades of green than I’ve ever seen. Moss. Trees. The emerald water. And the emptiness. It felt like I had the island all to myself. As an avid lover of birds, seeing bald eagles fly around the island was definitely a highlight as well. That bird is just so majestic.


The island has been colonized by a group of artists seeking serenity and refuge from the mainland grind. I found many little galleries and workshops around the island and the art was such an amazing reflection of the peaceful mindset on the island. It is the kind of stuff I would normally cynically dismiss as kitschy. But here it made sense and I found myself appreciating the pottery and watercolours that the local artisans were making here. There was a calm beauty to it.


I did, not surprisingly, let my eyes be led by existing fascinations and aesthetic pre sets. I took photos of rusty cars by the side of the road. Decaying farmhouses. Hints of urban decay mapped around the island. These I used as references for a set of pen and ink drawings that I assembled as a collage for the print. Together with references to the Island and my personal input, all of it resulted in a red and blue collage, celebrating my days at Orcas Island.”

#028 - Graphic Surgery



Destination: Talinn, Estonia
————————
Estonia is the most northern country of the Baltics, bordering the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Finland. Just like Latvia, which we visited for trip #003, it has been part of the former Soviet Union, and only regained independence back in 1991. The country is dotted with castles, churches, hilltop fortresses, and of course deserted Russian military sites. Amongst them a huge amphitheater, a Sea Fortress Prison, a missile hangar, and last but not least a Submarine Base. Perfect playgrounds for explorations and clandestine murals.


A little word from Graphic Surgery
—————————
Erris: “I simply wanted to experience the energy and really get a feel of the country. It is not much bigger than The Netherlands, so driving around was great. There’s an amazing mixture of Scandinavian and (ex) soviet culture and infrastructure. Old industrial surroundings combined with a fresh and vibrant energy. While traveling, we have always been fascinated by structures we see next to the road. Everywhere you see these typical pylons, and industrial structures. Besides that, driving out of the city, the painterly autumn colors we witnessed on the road were breathtaking.”

Gysbert: I thought that Estonia would be more Russian or Soviet influenced than it actually is. I thought the old wooden houses similar to Scandinavian houses were a nice surprise for instance in Tartu. The Eastern Europe meets Scandinavia mix is a great combination. It was quite hard to create an artwork for the print because we had so many impressions and ideas. It gives a strange feeling to travel and become inspired, knowing something has to turn out of it. Something that captures it all. The artwork we created is generated from the electricity pylons, when driving past you see them dynamically changing lines, some of them had a perfect rhombus or lozenge shape almost cut out entirely. We tried to capture the feeling of rusty and weather steel structures that we’ve seen along the road by printing on brown paper. Then there is a hidden rusty brown layer behind the black that is almost not visible, but it is there.”
