'My Dear Panda '79' : joint live painting gave great ending to our PopUp Expo

Well, our Maak Het Mee! Pop Up Expo seemed like it never would end, but the end was there, finally and ultimately. After getting extended at least three times in a row, thanks to the people of the Alliantie West-Kruiskade, especially Armando Sorrentino, who kindly gave us permission to use this empty shop as a venue to host our artshow.

So, for our final night and closure, we organised another live painting session, this time with remaining participants Bima Engels, Naomian Jansen, Xenia Gott and Christy de Witt, but there were a few other creative minds joining us, such as Irene Siekman (of Rotterdam art venue Werklicht). All of us got together in the making of a wall-covering piece, using various materials and mixed techniques, all purely for the 'joy of painting' (as Bob Ross would put it) and the need to create. It was truly a joy, because we all kept challenging and inspiring each other but while remaining respectful.

A true dialogue of creative minds, the best there is!

We named our work 'My Dear Panda '79'. It didn't survive the clean-up the next morning, as the paint was still dripping wet, there was no way to preserve it and we had to get all our stuff out that very afternoon. So, we creatively demolished it, however, its memory forever preserved in pictures and some video's. 

And on the spot, another Witty Art Work got sold as well
