ΠΟΛΙΤΙΣΜΟΣ

Έργα τέχνης μέσα στις στάχτες!

Εκεί που η πυρκαγιά κατέστρεψε τα πάντα!

Ο καλλιτέχνης Σέιν Γκράμερ (Shane Grammer), ο οποίος εργάζεται στην Disney, προσφέρει με το έργο του ελπίδα ζωγραφίζοντας «στη μέση της πλήρους καταστροφής», μετατρέποντας σε όμορφα γκράφιτι τα αποκαΐδια των πυρκαγιών στην Καλιφόρνια.

Το Paradise ήταν μία από τις περισσότερο πληγείσες περιοχές, με τους κατοίκους να εξακολουθούν να μαζεύουν τα κομμάτια της καταστροφής της.

Σε τμήματα αυτής της κοινότητας άρχισε ο Grammer να ζωγραφίζει στις 31 Δεκεμβρίου 2018, διάφορες εικόνες επιθυμώντας να ξαναφέρει ελπίδα στο καμένο τοπίο.

Η αρχική τοιχογραφία του καλλιτέχνη ήταν ένα πορτρέτο μιας γυναίκας ζωγραφισμένο πάνω στην καμινάδα ενός φίλου. Το κομμάτι έγινε viral, και ο Grammer βλέποντας την απήχηση του έργου του επέκτεινε τα γκράφιτι σε αυτοκίνητα και γκρεμισμένους τοίχους.

I had to come back up to Paradise! As an artist I have been working for years to create art that connects and moves people emotionally. Here in Paradise that has happened. It happened so suddenly and unexpectedly. Both my wife and I felt I should come back up and do some more painting. We are so grateful that these murals have brought hope, joy, and inspiration to people throughout Paradise. We have met so many amazing locals that encourage us with our project and have helped us find locations to paint. Yesterday @terence_duffy and I spent the day doing recon. I had to go back to a few locations and clean up the murals because of the heavy rains. Today was my first day painting and here is the latest mural. I want to give a big shout out to @hugheykevin and his law firm @hugheyphillipsllp. Thank you guys so much for been a huge support throughout this project. We couldn’t do it without you! . . . . . . . . #shanegrammer #shanegrammerarts #paradisestrong #hugheyphillips #terenceduffy #buttestrong #streetartglobe #montana94 #montanacolors94 #streetartportraits #streetartgallery #urbanportraits #urbanportrait #sprayplanet

The biggest thing that sticks out to me driving throughout Paradise is the endless images of burnt out vehicles and leftover chimneys still standing. One of the hard realities are the small business owners that lost their business during the fire. As we meet them we find out that a lot of them have to move away and start their business all over again. Here’s a small auto shop that completely burnt down. I thought this van was a beautiful canvas to paint. Big shot out to my wife Missy Grammer who is taking care of our family back home and believing in me enough to tell me to get back up to Paradise! I want to give a big shout out to @hugheykevin and his law firm @hugheyphillipsllp . Thank you guys so much for been a huge support throughout this project. We couldn’t do it without you! It’s great having the talented @terence_duffy! . . . . . . . #shanegrammer #shanegrammerarts #paradisestrong #hugheyphillips #terenceduffy #buttestrong #streetartglobe #montana94 #montanacolors94 #streetartportraits #streetartgallery #urbanportraits #urbanportrait #sprayplanet

Day 5 Paradise Camp Fire Mural Project: I think today I was moving pretty slow. I didn’t do any social media post. Definitely processing the whole week. So good to see friends from high school. Friends from my church growing up through high school and junior high. It felt like a reunion of friends and family. Meeting so many great people from the paradise community. This last Mural is a memorial as well as a home lost but we keep moving on. Moving forward loving our families. Story behind the art: This Mural is a memorial to Helen Pace. Helen was 84 yrs old. She was a widow. She is survived by four children, eight grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. Her life was taken in the Camp fire. She was a dear, sweet, and kind lady. God rest her soul, in Jesus. Our goal is to make a difference and bring hope to the Paradise Camp Fire victims. I’m glad I’m going be busy creating artwork because it’s going to keep me focused. We will be here through January 14-18 and I’m going to paint as much as I can! Thank you @hugheykevin and @hugheyphillipsllp for your partnership and support. We are thrilled we have @terence_duffy to photograph all week as I paint. . . . . . . . #shanegrammer #shanegrammerarts #terenceduffy #hugheykevin #hugheyphillips #hugheyphillipsllp #montana94 #montanacolors94 #paradisestrong #ptown #streetartportraits #spraypaintart #paradisecampfiremurals #montanashopla #buttestrong #buttecountystrong

Day 4 Paradise Camp Fire Mural Project: As you can see there’s absolutely nothing left of Hope Christian Church located on Pentz Road in Paradise California. Wasn’t sure if there was anything I could paint. A lot of these locations we have visited seem that way at first but as you walk around surfaces began to appear. Both Terence and I saw the baptismal right in the middle of the destroyed church and thought, that’s it. I really wanted to paint a portrait of Jesus on a church that was burned down. I thought that would just be incredibly meaningful and powerful. Thank you Jeana Darby for reaching out and giving me permission to paint where your church used to stand. May God bless you and the whole congregation as you begin to rebuild. Our goal is to make a difference and bring hope to the Paradise Camp Fire victims. I’m glad I’m going be busy creating artwork because it’s going to keep me focused. We will be here through January 14-18 and I’m going to paint as much as I can! Thank you @hugheykevin and @hugheyphillipsllp for your partnership and support.

Day 3 Paradise Camp Fire Mural Project: Ok, day 3 has been awesome and a struggle. The rain and the wind have kick our butts. Everything is soaked and muddy but the wind has really made it difficult. We stopped early and will go back to finish the mural when the weather calms down. Good news with @cmendonsa Cristina Mendonsa coming up from Sacramento to do an interview. So cool! And I had an hour long phone interview with the Washington Post in my wet and muddy pickup. But hey, The third Mural is almost completed. Story behind the art: When the home owner sent me his original email I was not inspired by the wall or chimney. Just because of the size. I was looking for a bigger canvas to work on. So that night I prayed about it and asked God to give me something for his wall. The next morning i woke up, turned over in bed and my wife Missy was sleeping facing me. Thank you God!!!! That's it!! Quietly got my iPhone and snap! There she is. I thought it was perfect. So this mural is going to be my amazing, lovely wife! Our goal is to make a difference and bring hope to the Paradise Camp Fire victims. I’m glad I’m going be busy creating artwork because it’s going to keep me focused. We will be here through January 14-18 and I’m going to paint as much as I can! Thank you @hugheykevin and @hugheyphillipsllp for your partnership and support.

Day 2 Paradise Camp Fire Mural Project: Day 2 Mural was for my high school friend Nicole Weddig and her husband Greg Weddig who Lost their home in the fire.
