The early part of the year is always a great opportunity for us to embrace a rare moment of down time - being one of the busiest Surrey wedding bands out there doesnt leave you a lot of it! This is the time of year that we focus in on other projects, and that gave us a great idea for this blog.
Last February Simon released an EP with his originals band Liemba (check the Feb 2017 entry for details!). It can sometimes be quite hard to find the right artist to create artwork for these things.
Luckily he stumbled across a new site called myartbrief.com. It is the perfect platform for anyone looking to collaborate with an artist. All you have to do is post a brief on the site and select the style of artist you like. The site then filters through all the options and lets you contact the artists you think would be a good match.
There are some great artists who create paintings from photographs. This could be a great way to remember your wedding day, by getting a photo from the day transformed into a beautiful painting.
Simon found an artist called Tobin who has a great abstract style. He produced such a stunning work of art that Simon can proudly use as the cover for his EP.
Check the two pieces he produced:
I can highly recommend using the site whether you want a bespoke piece of art or an original from an artists profile.
Such a good idea!
