Pleasure for the @championsofmedia team to work alongside the MD’s of Acquire Property Group today to film and photograph one of the latest investment properties in the brand’s portfolio of residential units. Fantastic to shoot such a great property and always brilliant to get the people behind the company in front of the camera to communicate their message.
Art has the ability to set the mood of its surroundings. Take this for instance, one of my clients asked to display my “Chef No. 1” painting at their company event, and they purposely displayed it behind this sushi chef station to get people hungry. Great match of themes right? 😂 Follow my account to hear more about my story! ☀️🎨👩🏻🎨💃🏻🇨🇦
There is a part of me
A small part with a loud voice.
The claims I don’t belong.
Not in the way that traps me in bed.
Rather the kind that wants to be in a hotel
or a hostel
or a tent
or a bed of my car.
The part of me that wants to never be comfortable.
The part of myself that I put into fiction
Story tell myself beyond reality
Move out and away.
Finally meet myself
The parts I’ve refused to face
The parts I claim I don’t have time for
Who I want to be is not here.
Maybe ill find him on a peak
Or drinking water in the valley.
Anywhere but here
I want to be anywhere but here.
Maybe who I am trying to find is
here in my apartment.
The man that contests me in the mirror.
Enjoying a struggle is a skill that most people do not have. But most people do not have an inner part of them that gets louder when they get comfortable. Maybe it is mental illness, maybe it is something else. But I think those of us who have a desire to be everywhere and nowhere at once, got that from sort of trauma. It could have been big or small, but somewhere along the line, something told them that they had to get out. They had to leave, and they couldn’t, now they are still running all of these years later.
We want to be the best version of ourselves, and after being told stories of people discovering themselves after going on some harrowing journey, some of us are constantly traveling, trying to push ourselves to a limit hoping that a new part of us will come out. That the thing we are missing will jump out of us and then everything will be okay. That skill of character will appear and finally, finally we will be able to rest.
But maybe that person we are trying to be, or find, or create, is already here. You are already that person, and you haven’t let yourself be still enough to met them. You spend your whole time trying to find them, you are actually running away from yourself. Love yourself enough to shake your own hand, you will be surprised who you meet.
Concept boards are the starting point of the creative process for a new design. They can be described as the direction that the project will take. ——
Here is a concept board I created for an abandoned brutalist building. The idea of bringing life back to the building and making it re-purposeful again.
