Artists in dialogue
A notably unique Open Studio unfolded amidst a midday deluge on a Wednesday, presenting the latest propositions  and  integrated into the Palimpsesto Mural Painting Residency Project. In this project, selected residents intricately interlace their creations with pre-existing murals on the wall, crafted by diverse artists since 2013. Consequently, the collective murals on our terrace evolve into a singular, ongoing masterpiece that delves into the juxtaposition of visual strata, fostering a nuanced and intricate aesthetic encounter. This permits spectators to navigate through varying layers of significance and interpretation, owing to the diverse interventions of artists spanning distinct styles, temporal realms, and career echelons.
Heather Brammeier, an experienced American artist, intervened in existing murals, responding to the marks and pre-existing images. On the other hand, Natalie Robinson, a promising American muralist completing her Bachelor’s in Graphic Design, seeks community connection and belonging through her creative murals. Additionally, the audience had the opportunity to explore the graphic work of Vera Fainshtein, a Ukrainian artist based in California, who, during her residency, captured the rich history and details of the contemporary urban landscape, enriching her visual style with the vibrant color palette of the city and traditional fileteado.
