During No Limit Street Art, curious creatives are invited to try digital fresco painting, and what might fit better than doing big-scale, in a church?
“It is a close collaboration with the Swedish church in Borås and, above all, vicar Stefan Hiller who made it possible. It’s hard to imagine a more pampering and more suitable environment for this activity, and we are very pleased to be able to host the activity in Caroli church, “says Stina Hallhagen, Project Manager No Limit Street Art.
The activity is based on a special technique developed by a Danish agency* focusing on digital design and specializing in interactive design and AV solutions for museums, all over the world.
“It works a bit like a giant book of paint. Streaked outlines are projected on the wall and anyone who wants to try uses a regular brush, directly against the wall. The brush movement is recorded, processed and in the projection a classic frieze appears at the same moment as the brush is moved. I think there will be a lot of people who are curious about this and want to test, “Stina continues.
“It’s not exactly every day a new fresco is being created, so it feels fun, new and somehow classical. Italian fresco means “fresh” or in Swedish “fräsch” if you want to be a little modern. The image of the Swedish Church in Borås as modern and fresh we would like to stand for, although the church will of course also carry important basic messages. I hope and believe that this will involve many brand new visitors in the beautiful Caroli church, “says Stefan Hiller, vicar, the Swedish Church of Borås.
The digital fresco painting can be tried Saturday and Sunday 9-10 September in Caroli church between 12.00-18.00 both days.
(Source Wikipedia) Painting al fresco, fresco painting, fresco, is a limestone painting on wet plaster.
The term comes from Italian fresco, which means “on fresh [wall]”. With fresco technology, powdered pigments are mixed with water, which is painted directly on damp, freshly ground lime pads. First, a coarse stock layer is added to dry, and then a layer of finer lime, which is the basis for the painting. The thin plaster layer is laid on a small area at a time, as much as expected to be painted before the pad dried, since the painting can not be changed after the pad has dried.
