    • Painted: An Adventure in Stop Motion Body Art


      from Elvis Schmoulianoff / Added

      213K Plays / / 62 Comments

      Painted is an experiment in stop motion face & body painting that plays with the idea of giving paint it's own life and personality on a living canvas. The whole project was initially inspired by MUTO - the incredible stop motion graffiti video by BLU. Imagined, painted, modelled, photographed & edited by Elvis Schmoulianoff www.elvisschmoulianoff.com www.facebook.com/elvisveganmakeupartist Music: Flow Motion by Square One https://soundcloud.com/squareonednb https://www.facebook.com/pages/Square-One-Music/306025526108643?fref=ts Everything was photographed in my bedroom in late 2012/early 2013 with a point and shoot camera , natural light, a pile of paints & body paints, brushes and a mirror over a period of 10 days. The final sequence contains footage from five of those days and is comprised of 1064 individual images, the rest was mainly retakes of the first minute which all taught me valuable lessons in what not to do... Painted was inspired by some amazing artists and the video is a little homage to their outstanding talent and a thank you for the smiles and wonder it has given me. Jean-Michel Basquiat's fantastic body of work, Fritz Lang's impressionist masterpiece Metropolis and the sumptuous makeup art of Alex Box all served as fantastic visual inspiration, Blu's stop-motion graffiti inspired the concept itself and the sheer ingenuity and borderless creativity of LA based artist A Dandypunk and England's Happy Slap Boutique gave me the push to embark on a new creative adventure on my own. xxx

        US DVD / VOD & Netflix Release date - FEBRUARY 21st!!! UK Premiere - March 2nd @ ICA London & special late night screening at the Rio Cinema in Dalston!! Also playing March 6th - 8th @ The Queens Film Theatre in Belfast http://www.queensfilmtheatre.com/films/blankcity/ Blank City Documentary - 94min directed by Celine Danhier BLANK CITY tells the long-overdue tale of a disparate crew of renegade filmmakers who emerged from an economically bankrupt and dangerous moment in New York history. In the late 1970's and mid 80's, when the city was still a wasteland of cheap rent and cheap drugs, these directors crafted daring works that would go on to profoundly influence the development of independent film as we know it today. Directed by French newcomer Céline Danhier, BLANK CITY weaves together an oral history of the “No Wave Cinema” and “Cinema of Transgression” movements through compelling interviews with the luminaries who began it all. Featured players include acclaimed directors Jim Jarmusch and John Waters, actor-writer-director Steve Buscemi, Blondie’s Debbie Harry, Hip Hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, photographer Richard Kern as well as Amos Poe, James Nares, Eric Mitchell, Susan Seidelman, Beth B, Scott B, Charlie Ahearn and Nick Zedd. Fittingly, the soundtrack includes: Patti Smith, Television, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, The Contortions, The Bush Tetras, Sonic Youth and many more.

        • First Frost

          The folks at 17 Frost Street were kind enough to give me some space to start knocking out drawings in The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince as it's actually in French) while Aakash Nihalani installed his tape show and the band rehearsed. It was a nice way to start this new projet which I am imagining as a sort of modular, multi platform, multimedia memoir of my time at the turn of the century in Paris... Though I hope it will be open enough to use as part of my ongoing blogging/vlogging experiment, the end result should be a fairly focused narrative electronic book. I learned recently that they found St-Exupery's downed plain in the sea. Not only this, but the German who shot him down came forward to own the kill. The irony was that Exupery was the Nazi pilot's hero and had inspired him to fly in the first place. He had carried with him the fear and dread for all these years that he had shot down the writer/aviator and when they found the plane he knew from his flight log that it was his mission and his gun. Small world indeed. Anyways the opening of Aakash's show is thursday: 17 Frost and Bose Pacia Present: Aakash Nihalani Thursday, October 9, 2008 7 - 10 pm Located in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood, 17 Frost, an auxiliary venue of Bose Pacia New York, will now begin hosting performance and studio arts projects. We are excited to announce the inaugural event on Thursday, October 9. Please join us as we host New York based street artist, Aakash Nihalani, who will present his impromptu and ephemeral tape installations. Bose Pacia 508 West 26th St, 11th FL New York, NY 10001 T: 212.989.7074 F: 212.989.6982 mail@bosepacia.com www.bosepacia.com The music here is The Replacements: Can't Hardly Wait http://www.futureofthebook.org/itinplace/
