The month of October that has just begun led to the birth and to the official opening reception of a new artistic hub in Turin, Beeozanam.
Among many realities involved in the project, we find our friends from Missiontoart who, for the occasion, presented the brand new works born from the artist’s latest residency together with Nico Miyakawa.

In Missiontoart’s latest artist residency they invited Italian-Japanese artist Nico Miyakawa. With a portfolio primarily formed by hand drawn sketchbooks filled with dreamy scenarios, his work takes the viewer through a rich and detailed interpretation of reality. He created “Nico’s Room”, a space in the former industrial offices fully painted by the artist, where you can get be surrounded by Nico’s characters. A 360 degrees experience we suggest to do not miss.

Together they created a 22 pieces of limited edition print, experimenting on new methods to develop the films. They put the digital process aside and dove into an artisanal approach for all stages of printing, letting Nico paint directly onto the acetate films to produce the screens. Seven acetate film sheets for seven levels of colors, harmoniously overlaid, mixed and bound together to bring the print to life. Here is the result: a palm tree of such vivid, bright colors – that only serigraphy can recreate – on a sky blue background previously hand-painted by the artist. A print that portrays exotic moods, tropical landscapes and the warm light of a summer that is not over yet.

The limited edition is made on 300gsm, 100% cotton paper. Dimension 50cm x 70cm. If you want to get the vibes and bring them into your home, you can find the print available in their store.
