Express Yourself Artfest 2015 Paper Mache

Carnival is an old tradition, for sure in Central Europe.
Each year we have a parade even in small towns with floats.

Sometimes political statements are made in a humorous way.
The figures are mostly made out of paper and glue, we call it Papier-Mâché,(French) or in English Paper Mache.

This project I had in mind for a long time already and now it was appropriate to make something with it.

Express yourself papier mache collage I love RL photography and made several pictures of the parades over the years, so I have a huge collection by now.
The most striking things about the floats are the (deformed) figures, the colors, the creativity and the humor.
For me they are very suited for this exhibit, crazy, wacky, overdone and expressive :-)

2015 IWZ D&V EXPRESS YOURSELF ART FEST POSTER 5 FINAL -  JPGThis Art Fest is always fun and has a great succes !  For now there will be 38 artist displaying…the criteria : BE WILD, BE CRAZY…and in that perspectieve I really did my best… :-) more to come later….

My first involvement in the Art section was with the Express Yourself Exhibit in 2011. At that time a big questionmark for me… I was not sure what or if it was Art… But I discovered later by having fun in making things this was more important than the question :-).
