Examples of previous works



Artist: Olimpia Zagnoli
—————————
Born into an artist family in Milano, Italy, it was no wonder that Olimpia turned out to be the person who she is today. She epitomizes everything that we love about the Italians. Driving a Vespa, sipping a doppio espresso, and always enjoying life with flair and style. In her work, we see reoccurring themes of people and their dreams, hopes, struggles and desires, characterized by strong clear lines, vivid colours and stark contrasts. It sounds simple but Olimpia always delivers with an unmatched elegance.

Tromsø


Destination: Tromsø, Norway
————————
The Northern Lights are one of the natural wonders of the world that should be on anyone’s bucket list. Scientifically explained are the bright dancing lights of the aurora collisions between gaseous particles in the Earth’s atmosphere with charged particles released from the sun’s atmosphere. But really, you just have to see it. Tromsø has been a famed destination for Northern Light viewing, situated all the way up north in Norway, with it’s historic and charming city center. It will be an ideal base for Olimpia to start exploring and be charmed by the Northern Lights.

Artist: Troy Lovegates
—————————
Troy Lovegates materialized in the late 90′s out of the artist formerly known as “Other. Known for his character based finger-paintings, made with oil bars blended onto the cold metal sides of freight trains which constantly click clack across North America. Another more stationary body of Troy’s work can also be found outdoors, scattered across the globe in the form of murals. As a self-described ‘collector of lost souls’, Troy focuses on the figure as a story, building motifs through heavily condensed mark making, drawing from equal parts caricature and realistic observation.

valencia001


Destination: Valencia, Spain
————————
As the third-largest city of in Spain, Valencia doesn’t mind that Madrid and Barcelona get all the attention. Life is good in Valencia, and there is no need to let the whole world know about it. Be amazed by delicious food all around, and the local paella especially, or climb the El Garbí mountain, a few miles north of the City to get a stunning view of the city and the market gardens surrounding it. All of this situated on the Gulf of Valencia. A true Spanish pearl.

Dates: 29 November - 4 December, 2017

54702-5ad73122bf2040d889261476c6b73727



Artist: Hense
—————————
Creating artwork from an early age, Alex Brewer quickly took on the moniker Hense and gained notoriety for his graffiti. Two decades later, Alex combines a street culture point of view with abstract compositions to vibrant colors, playful lines and a wide variety of shapes. Always focusing on the relationship between those elements and their interaction. While his work has evolved over the years, his tools largely remain consistent with his earlier years as a graffiti artist. Using rollers, spray paints and house paints inside the studio and outside for his murals.


More work of Hense can be found on his website: www.hensethename.com.


Valentia Island


Destination: Kells Bay, Ireland
————————
The southwest coast of Ireland is a rural paradise. A collection of cliffed coastlines with small fisher towns and traditional Irish pubs. Towns and places such as Dingle, Clonakilty, Kells Bay and others. This is where the pace slows down, where the fresh air fills your lungs, and inspiration lies on the never-ending horizon. After taking all the surroundings that the Irish countryside has to offer, Hense will return back to the city of Dublin, where he will get his hands dirty in a local print studio, to personally work on his print edition. Combining the best of two worlds in one trip.

039- Tom Haugomat



Artist: Tom Haugomat
—————————
Tom is a prime example of a Parisian, born and raised in the city where he resides to this day. With a start in animated films, it is no wonder that Tom’s work has a cinematic look and feel to it. His signature style is characterized by a strong sense of composition, a striking colour palette and an acute awareness of the power of negative space. His work is inspired by the colours and curves of nature, which makes for the Japanese island of Yakushima a perfect destination for his Jaunt trip.

yakushima001


Destination: Yakushima, Japan
————————
Yakushima is an island in the south of Japan, which feels like a completely different world from the city life of Japan’s megacities. The island is a unspoilt paradise, largely known for its ancient forests that cover most of the island. With its cedar trees (known as Yakusugi) which can be up to thousands year old, and its crystal clear rivers turning into breath taking waterfalls. No wonder, the fairytale-like foliage of the island served as the inspiration for the “Princess Mononoke” movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Coincidentally, one of Tom’s favourite movies.

038-examples-lores



Artist: Andrea Wan
—————————
Andrea Wan has a history that would make any avid traveller jealous. Born in Hong Kong, raised in Vancouver, studied in Denmark and now living in Berlin. From an early age she was fascinated by stories, improvising her own stories and recording these onto cassettes. This fascination for stories developed into her own visual universe consisting of bright colours and eerie and surreal surroundings. For her first Jaunt trip, Andrea travelled to Seyðisfjörður in Iceland, now she will be experiencing a month-long residency throughout Nepal.

038-inside


Destination: Kathmandu, Nepal
————————
To clear her head and get completely out of her comfort zone, Andrea Wan will break away from her usual travel routine and pursuit a spiritually heavy journey. This is where Nepal comes into the picture. The first part of her trip will consist of a 10-day visit to the Kopan monastery for a retreat consisting of meditation, talks and discussion about Tibetan Buddhism and two days of a silent retreat. Six years ago, Andrea had a vivid dream. She was in a monastery, which suddenly became flooded. Luckily, she could swim to a giant Buddha and give the Buddha’s face a hug. Strangely enough, the Buddha from Andrea’s dream has an uncanny resemblance to the Buddha inside the Kopan monastery, adding just a little bit of suspense into the equation.

The second part of her trip consists of trekking at the Annapura base camp in the Himalayas. Mountains have always had a strong appeal to Andrea Wan, who keeps herself longing for returning to nature and mountains while in her Berlin studio. Now, without the distractions of city life, there will be all the time in the world to find oneself, meditate, draw and return with a newfound peace and inspiration.



About Jaunt Magna
————————-
The Jaunt is all about getting inspired while in a new situation. Exploring your surroundings while exploring yourself. Usually our trips last 5 to 6 days. Long enough to get the feel of a place, but short enough to make you want to go back another time. But sometimes you want to get in deeper and keep the momentum going. For these trips, we created the Jaunt Magna. This is a new format, where artists experience an extended residency, for a period of 3 to 4 weeks. Through this format, we give artists time to get a better understanding of their new surroundings, and how they and their work may be influenced.

The Jaunt Magna trips will result in an exhibition featuring original works, a publication which documents the travel journey along with photos, sketches and artworks from the artist’s trip, and of course a screen print. The screen print is available to order as per usual before the trip takes place.

Destination: Sante Fe, NM, USA

Dates: 15 - 20 September, 2017

54702-ac940214ab2143239f0e5dd8f6421c10



Artist: Merijn Hos
—————————
With his distinct style, Merijn Hos has created his own visual language and universe in which he acts as the Art Director. In 2012, Merijn started a series of Wood Sculptures, depicting objects which are omnipresent in his work, such as plants, faces, and pottery. Distilled to their most simple forms, narrowing each item down to the essence of their shape. His inspiration is drawn from Art Brut and Folk Art. Painting rather abstract forms in a naïve way, and only using 24 colours and a uniform brush size.

More work of Merijn can be found on his website: www.merijnhos.com or www.woodsculptures.



santefe001

Sante Fe, New Mexico, United States
————————
Sante Fe, originally occupied by indigenous peoples, has remained all of its charms over the years. Strolling through its Adobe neighborhoods or around the busy Plaza gives you a timeless feeling. Mixed in with its historic, folk art and contemporary museums and galleries, Sante Fe is a unique place to visit. One of these museums is the International Museum of Folk Art, which has over 100.000 pieces donated by Alexander Girard, one of the foremost collectors of Folk Art. This collection is the main reason for Merijn Hos to visit Sante Fe.

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.

035-kt-tictailv


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.


A little word from Kristin:
————————
“I chose Newfoundland because I’ve always been drawn to the sea and I was looking forward to that misty, island light. I love the sounds and colors associated with fisherman villages – the old houses, textures of wood and rusted metal. On my trip I was lucky to have conversations with people everywhere I went. I sat for lunch at the old Mallard Cottage next to a 73 year old man named Jesse Julius Junior and listened to his life story. I followed old wooden signs to the edge of a cliff where a woman named Angie keeps a trinket shop open year round – seemingly to lure strangers in for a hearty conversation. I felt a part of the family that runs the Round Da Bay Inn on the way north to Bonavista. Everyone on the island was amazingly friendly. I filled a whole book with stories collected from strangers-turned-friends at each pit stop.

For my print I created something that I like to call a memory-map, highlighting one of my favorite days on the island. It shows my travel north towards Bonavista – the top of one of the eastern peninsulas. My first stop was by an old church on the cliffs – I walked down to the water, sat on rocks and played with pieces of an iceberg that had washed ashore. I continued north to the town of Bonavista where I sat in a cafe called Neil’s Yard for hours listening to the local ladies gossip, watching couples come and go. The windows were fogged. It was raining. From there I went to the lighthouse at the very tip of town. There three huge rocks in the sea that you can see at the top-center of the print. Looped around town to a place on a hill called the Bonavista Social Club – sat in a window seat and watched the grey waves move and the sheep seek shelter at the bottom of the hill.”

034-lb-edition2-copy


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.



A little word from Laura:
————————
“The contrast and combination between modern and ancient was probably the first thing that struck me in Lima. I loved checking out the different districts and seeing the contrast in vibes and architecture. Barranco is filled with colonial buildings and colorful walls. Meanwhile the city is perched on top of a cliff overlooking the ocean, so there’s also this beautiful green, lush parkway that runs alongside the coast. There’s a real sense of deep respect for the heritage of the country. It was very inspiring for me to notice how the colors in the city bumped up against each other and created amazing combinations. There’s also often a tendency to think of huge cities as feeling less friendly or being more dangerous, but I had the exact opposite experience in Lima.


For the second edition print, I was focused on the contrasts I saw in the city so I chose black and white as the main colors to highlight that. The connection to nature in Lima is very strong for such a dense urban place. There are beautiful plants, trees, and cactuses all over that give it this surprising tropical and desert vibe amid so much concrete. I pulled that into the piece using some plants, and brought in the ocean by using the plants as both a sort of sail and oar. I wanted to focus on the idea of balance, between natural life and city life, between ancient and modern, and how that relates to personal balance as well.”
