RAW is an amazing organization which functions as a fantastic platform for new and emerging artists to showcase their work locally and around the globe. On the 31st of May RAW Melbourne presented Revolution - an evening of art, fashion, music, film and performance at the Melbourne Pavilion in Flemmington starring an eclectic mix of amazing talent in all disciplines.
I was kindly granted a fabulous space to exhibit where I showcased a selection of old & new work, my stop motion animation Painted and some new body art which I created live throughout the evening with the assistance of my amazing friend: makeup artist Shannon McKean on the divine Miss Jasmina Mili. Shannon's help was absolutely invaluble (the woman is beyond brilliant) and Jasmina absolutely rocked it - the girl was born to model!!
The marvelous creative team of Alysander De Djinn Photography & Olivia Duval were absolute life savers - a huge thank you to the both of them for their beautiful help and generosity. Not only did these superstars lend me all I needed to make my space presentable but they practically set up & decorated everything as well as organizing space to capture some GORGEOUS images of the finished body painting. I am sooooooo happy with the photos and can't wait until they're finished so I can share them with you!!
Huge thanks also go out to my irreplaceable friends Dave & Benito for getting me to and from the event, to Daniel Cumbo for his company and encouragement, to the fantastic organizers of RAW - especially Yolanda - for their help and amazing efforts in putting together the night and to everyone who came to show their love and support throughout the evening :)
