Studio Arts: Instinctive Explorations / 4 Projects on Masonite Panels with Issa Nyaphaga November 12-16, 2012 M-F, 5 Days

In this workshop,  participants will work on 4 projects on Masonite panels with Issa’s guidance. On day one we will be working with an approach that Issa calls “Prehistoric Drawing” and another called “Touch Painting”,  on Day 2 we will be working on “Sand Paintings”, using colored sand, and we will also learn a technique and process that Issa calls ”Capillarism”.  I *Experienced and advanced artists are welcome. *All materials included.

Issa Nyaphaga is a politically-committed artist and poet from Cameroon. His unique, political and artistic career has fostered multi facetted work: humorous drawings, caricatures which have landed him in prison several times, collages and “capillarism”, graphic research, painting on canvas and on his own body – his face, arms, and hands – in music. Through exhibits, documentaries, performances, meetings and workshops, Issa Nyaphaga brings us a complex and paradoxical universe that is at the same time playful and colorful but serious, fragmented but perfectly homogenous, provocative but esthetic.
