What fun! ... a huge THANK YOU to @thesketchbookproject for creating the wonderful #CanvasProject, exhibition, book & art exchange. If you didn't participate let me explain ...
Firstly #thesketchbookproject asked their followers for a bunch of words that they thought difficult to illustrate, then they put a call out to artists to participate. They then sent each of us a word, with a small canvas in a sweet little box. We each illustrated the word and sent it back to the @brooklynartlibrary where they assembled an exhibition, photographed everyone's work, created a #VisualEncyclopedia and very sweetly swapped our work so we got another artist's work in exchange .
My word was #catacombs and I received #nacarat by @acevedostudio
I can't imagine how much work everyone has put in, but it's been a super fun project to be part of.
If you participated please let me know your word and I'll look it up.
Series: “From” Origami and modular collage of 42 pieces of paper. Sydney 2019
From the readable to the illegible,
From its context to its discontext.
From communication to lack of communication.
From its functionality to constructive destruction.
From the language code to its decoding.
Poster torn from a lamp post in the center of Sydney. This advertising poster with the function of disseminating information, an event, or an economic good loses its main advertising functions to become an illegible modular collage/origami.

The Taj Mahal at Sunrise by photographer Levi Looke-Santiago, February 2019.
This very talented photographer has captured this stunning moment in time at the infamous Taj Mahal, India. As Levi stated in his own words, "No photograph could ever do it justice". However, I'm sure you'd agree that he definitely gave it a good go!

There was an art battle last Saturday @artbattlesydney, and today is Tuesday, it is the time to write about it. Better late than never 😂
12 artists participated, 20 minutes for each round, only 3 rounds, 6 artists participated in the first two rounds, the winners of the first two rounds compete in the third one. Audience were choosing the winners in every round.
Thanks to the organizers of @artbattlesydney for the unusual format of the competition and a creative evening 🎨🖌
Thank you very much to our friends 🙏🏼🥰 Your support is invaluable and means a lot to us!
It was interesting to watch the artists, each with their own idea and technique. I really enjoyed the live music throughout the evening, it was very atmospheric🎼🎷🎺
My talented handsome @l.banov won in this competition 👨🏼🎨🥇🏆
Of course I am happy and very proud of you @l.banov! I see and I know that this is a hard work how your ideas and pictures appear, how much work and time is invested in his unquestionable talent and skill! I believe in you and love very much ❤️ Forever and always ❤️ #lobanovart

This Saturday I had a great opportunity to be in @artbattlesydney , I still can’t believe that I won this competition as everything just flew through me this evening, with these 2 short 20 minutes rounds.
It was a very cool and fun night and I can admit I was nervous, as there were 12 artists in the game. They were all very talented and I’m happy that I had this opportunity to meet them all in one place.
The rules were to have 6 artists in round 1 and 2 each. 4 winners compete in round 3 for the first place. Each round is 20 minutes, it felt like 2 minutes and after I heard they said 60 seconds left and started to count down 10, 9, 8.... 🥵😧😵😶
The best thing was that the winners were chosen by the audience at the end and it really gives me that special feeling to understand that people like my work and actually bought both of my paintings.
At the end many people were applauding me, but I didn’t really understand that they were for me until I got home and had a second though about it 🤪🤪🤪
I want to thank the managers of @artbattlesydney for this great opportunity and a very creative evening!
Special thanks to my support team! The closest and dearest friends came! And you guys were the loudest and coolest, I love you very much!🙏🏻🙏🏻❤️❤️ #lobanovart
