THE ARTIST PROCESS
Saturday September 4th, 2010
joined others at 5 Pointz, a well-known quarter in Queens, NY, where artists from all over come out to create art and celebrate freedom of expression by showcasing their art across building walls. The artists took to the famed brick canvas to paint the phrase “The Artist Process” as feleciacruz (co-founder of Fighting For Futures) captured it all on film. Acclaimed New York City “live art performer” and director of this project, Marthalicia, was quoted as saying:
“We all live in NYC, so we all have a rhythm…These are just
layers, you can say, of all the art that has been expressed here...
I hope this event can show and tell people there is a lot of love
for the creating and hopefully this love can equal positive energy.”
The Artist Process, a film by Marthalicia and a feleciacruz production, is a twelve-minute documentary created to showcase the power of human expression through art. Following the lives of four artists, including Marthalicia, Lichiban, Mister Metro and Danielle Mastrion, The Artist Process captures the intimate details of the artists’ lives as they prepare for the project and the connection they share with the other locals as they combine forces in an effort to bring a community together through their collective expression.
A powerful and colorful statement about expression, communication and compassion, The Artist Process will have its debut screening at "Headquarters" (1381 Myrtle Ave .Brooklyn, Ny) on Saturday, September 4, 2010, along with live performances by local musicians and will showcase works by the artists involved in The Artist Process. Donations will be collected throughout the night and portions of proceeds from both the door and the sale of the artwork will be donated to help fund The Artist Process 2, helping bring together even more artists and bring to light the importance of artistic expression in our communities.
