The Artist Project: a feast for the
eyes and heart
Have you ever visited a warehouse full of ideas, ingenuity and truly new artistic concepts? zeeBigBang has – and it’s called The Artist Project.
Now in its sixth year, The Artist Project, features more than 200 artists from Canada and around the world and it continues to provide the answer to: “What is Art?
The Google dictionary defines Art as: The expression or application of human creativity skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture.” The Artist Project’s definition is much more profound with its rich textures, varied materials, boundless colours and endless array of skill and technique. A veritable feast for the eyes and heart.
Every piece of art on display tells a story. It’s easy to feel like a child eavesdropping on the worldly adventures of artists through their work on exhibit. An enchanting experience.
Undeniably every artist has his or her personal muse to thank. Each piece of work is crafted as an intimate expression of emotion, reflection and experience.
It is nearly impossible for visitors of The Artist Project to drink fully from such an enormous cup of beauty, insight, wisdom and delight of the senses.
