KunstWest Project

For my internship i made these two stop motion video’s. They are inspired by the neighborhood my internship (KunstWest) is located. To get the idea’s of the video’s i did a research in this neighborhood. For each idea i made a painting first.

This idea is about freedom and helping each othter. In the neighborhood allot of the streets are named by freedom fighters. That is why i choose for making this video about white bird. But also because the name of the video is the same name as the building my internship is in and means ‘The Flight’. In this building are allot of creative people and businesses. The birds coming together while illustrating a ship symbolises the way you can overcome things if you get together and help each other.

In the neighborhood the primary collors, red, blue, yellow and the collor green is on every corner, house, playground and street present. This is a video i made for my internship at KunstWest. This is a organisation, located in Amsterdam West, that tries to connect people true art and other creatief activities. This video is inspired by the neighborhood my internship is located. In the neighborhood the primary collors, red, blue, yellow and the collor green is on every corner, house, playground and street present. The drawing and the moving of the blocks represent the (re)building of your suroundings (neighborhood) by taking initiative in going outside, undertake and organise activities or just simply spread a good vibe around by getting together and play in the many playgrounds and parks.

  1. Hee Abel, Ik ben onder de indruk van je werk. Niet alleen zijn je schilderijen knap en mooi, en zijn de films heel goed (!), ook je uitleg, je verhaal er omheen klopt echt. Heb je dat zelf bedacht en vertaald? Je bent een artiest met gevoel voor detail en je omgeving. Het lijkt soms of je in je eigen wereld leeft, maar dat blijkt dus niet aan je kunstuitingen. Die zijn echt jouw manier waarop je jezelf uitdrukt. Is het schilderij met het schip/de vogels te koop? groetjes Jip
