LIVE PAINTING IN ALOFT HOTELS WITH JISBAR
Aloft Hotels asked us to get host a live painting session with French artist Jisbar! This idea was so well received that the artist was inspired to create five new artworks for his first Belgian expo.
Jisbar has been creating art since 2006. His works are filled with references to pop culture and media, combined with parts and inspiration out of his personal life. Fashion, music, skate, freestyle and street art elements are heavily present, often in a completely transformed space where the spectator can rejuvenate in his own nostalgia.
The five new artworks for this expo are from the Ca$h series, featuring the ever-famous Micky Mouse, Bart Simpson, Donald Duck, the genie from Aladdin, and Tom from the legendary duo Tom & Jerry. These 80 x 80 cm canvas have been vigorously touched with pastel, acrylic, oil and spray paint.
After the warm welcome by the Aloft team, Jisbar and his assistant unrolled his paint, markers and brushes, to work on a fresh 2x2 meter canvas that was waiting for them in the lobby. This ended up in being an afternoon and evening filled with live painting, little chats with the hotel visitors, paint spatters on places where you wouldn’t imagine, and a big ‘ol Blingsmurf prancing in fields of cash.
