Featured – Art and Music Collaboration

Art And Music together can create magic!

Day #9: Ghoul – Screech

Today I am very happy to share that I was “Featured” on the new website and Blog of indie band Rigna.Folk from Germany!

You can read their Feature Blog Post here: Collaborations with two artists from the US and Macedonia

Last November I have collaborated with the Rigna Folk creating a video displaying a selection of my recent paintings having as soundtrack one of their beautiful songs.
If you follow me maybe you remember my Blog post, if you are new you can read it here:

Art Inspiring Magic – Stillness – (Video)

RiGNA.FOLK is a great Indie band from Germany, I love their music and they love my art!
I think is beautiful that we crossed paths!

I dedicated my art to music many times already and I find it to be very inspiring.

Art Inspiring Magic – Stillness – (Video)

Day #9: Ghoul – Screech

A special Thank you, goes to the Band RiGNA FOLK  for the great idea and suggestion to me, to create this video as combination of their music with my art. And I am honored that they let me use their beautiful music as soundtrack to my paintings! Thank you so much  Viktor Nordir.
Who follows me for longer time knows that I love music, but also that I have a very specific and not so commercial taste and I love to introduce you with the bands I like or discover! I also have posted here on the Blog experiences attending live concerts, Interviews with independent artists and videos! I like to use my Art collaborating with music artists. I have created paintings and portraits dedicated to music artists as Fan Art! My collection is named “Art For Music”  as an independent artist myself, I love when we can support each other or I can support someone else dream.

This video happened magically while replying each other comments on Instagram!
Viktor, frontmen of the band had this idea, while commenting on my recent paintings and I found it to be a awesome idea that I had to bring it alive!
I think the song I chose is “Zone II” from their album “Astropolis” and it match greatly with my Art.
On the Rigna Folk website you can read their Blog Post about this: Collaboration with two artists from the US and Macedonia

RiGNA FOLK is a band from Germany, we follow each other from a while now, I love their music and they love my art! I think is beautiful to cross paths!

RiGNA FOLK

They are a great indie band! I love their alternative, post rock music “Rigna Folk is a band that creates a parallel world. A rainy, dreamy world that, supported by music, is constantly changing and expanding: sound-painting like Sigur Rós, pictorially like Pink Floyd, as experimental as Radiohead”.  They produced several Albums and their discography is growing more with a coming very soon new album!

Recently they performed a great cover  “David Bowie, Space Oddity song” you can find it on their YouTube channel!

If you like this music genre, I really suggest you to check their music out!

– Last Days  –
MabsDrawlloweenClub – InkTober 2017

Day #27 – 28 – 29 – 30 – 31: Double challenge #Drawlloweentober

Day #27 Little Devil – Climb

Day #27 – This day prompts were Little Devil and Climb. I don’t really like to paint devil’s images, but I made this one more thinking at a horned ethereal creature like a fantasy fairy or game character the color red obviously was supposed to be!

Day #28 Villain – Fall

Day #28 – This is my choice for the prompt Villain my painting is inspired by the Disney movie “Maleficent” and she is Angelina Jolie in her character!

Day# 29 and 30 Broom Ride – Spider

Days #29 and #30 – I had to catchup a day so I decided to combine two days using four promps in one drawing! Prompts are: Broom Ride, United, Spider, Found 🖤Today I wrote a short story for this painting!  “Gilda the mysterious witch in a night during Fall, was seen in the sky at night, she was fast riding her broom happily, after she got reunited with her found friend Spider!” ©CR 🖤♥️

Day #31 Tim Burton – Mask

Day# 31 – This is my “Emily” character from the movie “Corps Bride” honoring Tim Burton with this prompt. I haven’t changed Emily character too much, but she has my style touch! This is last painting of this amazing month of October!
