PAINTLOON


Balloon art meets painting

 

Paintloon is a creative idea of professional fine artist and body painter Bella Volen.

 

Paintloon is painting on a balloon. It can be a combination of fine art, body painting, fashion, and balloon sculpting. With latex modeling balloons details, objects, accessories complete costumes are made, which creates an extension for the body paint or fine artist to paint on, allowing the ability to merge the body or composition fully with any additional parts into one design.

 

PAINTLOON


Luftballons treffen Malerei

Paintloon ist eine kreative Idee der akademischen Künstlerin Bella Volen.

 

Paintloon ist eine Mischform aus Malerei und Luftballons. Es kann eine Kombination aus bildender Kunst, Körperbemalung, Mode und Modellierballons sein. Mit Latex Ballons können Gegenständen, Flügel, komplette Kostüme aufgebaut werden. Diese Teile können eigenständig als Skulpturen benutzt werden, oder als eine Erweiterung von dem Bodypainting. Die Kombination von bemalten Kostümen aus Luftballons mit Bodypainting, oder mit bemalten Overalls ist sehr passend für große Veranstaltungen und konservativeres Publikum.

The Peculiar Garden, was created as a commission work, and It took place in a shopping mall. The idea was to bring something beautiful, and colorful to adults, and children, who probably don't have any contact with art. For me art is a bridge, which connects people and cultures.

 

The nature is our most important treasure.

It is the place, where the time stops, and the heart beat calms down from the stress of the modern world. The nature has also a restoration effects on humans, it is very deeply connected with each one of us.

Several scientists have posited that the deep affiliations humans have with nature are rooted in our biology. Biologist E.O. Wilson wrote a great deal about the concept of biophilia, which he described as "the connections that human beings subconsciously seek with the rest of life.” Taking an evolutionary perspective, he reasoned that our affinities for nature have been influenced by adaptations needed for survival in hunter/gatherer and agrarian societies.

 

From the beginning of human history, nature has played a vital role in our creative expression. Nature’s beauty and power is ingrained in our lives, our history and our culture. The beauty of nature reflected in art is just another reminder of our need to protect it.

The famous Fibonacci sequence has captivated mathematicians, artists, designers, and scientists for centuries. Also known as the Golden Ratio, its ubiquity and astounding functionality in nature suggests its importance as a fundamental characteristic of the Universe. We find it everywhere, in a flower, seeds, shells, not surprisingly, spiral galaxies also follow the Fibonacci pattern. We don’t know why, but everything in nature, including the humans too, is based on the same structure.

 

This Paintloon collection is based on nature and different patterns, a dreamy, surreal version of a garden, placed in a modern environment. The balloon art is like a beautiful ritual, which exists only for a short time. This is the beauty of it. It is like the life moments, when we realize what is happening, the moment is gone, but the memory stays. The only constant element in our world is change.

The child in each one of us, in our hearts and minds is always dreaming of exploring new, and secret places, hidden worlds and parallel realms, where magical creatures exist and everything is beautiful. This is a project to inspire and bring colorful joy for children and adults.
