The Jaunt #008 - David Shillinglaw (Denmark)

1h ago

Few things are as inspiring as discovering new places, and few people need constant inspiration as much as artists. That’s the idea behind art and travel concept The Jaunt, which was launched by Jeroen Smeets in 2013 and has already resulted in some......


Stepping out of your comfort zone and experiencing new surroundings is often quoted as the main source of inspiration for artists. We aim to provide these inspirations to artists with our project The Jaunt. Realizing short and pleasurable trips for the artists. For each trip we will send an artist to a new destination. Once arrived, the artist will soak up all of the local impressions and inspirations. From freshly brewed local coffee to small boutiques, neoclassical architecture, overcrowded tourist sights or whatever else falls in their way. Each trip is different, because each destination and artists is different. ''David's trip to the Danish summer house was a much needed break for him. Instead of the usual clutter and distractions of hectic city life his five days at the summer house were filled with long walks, swimming in the ocean and being able to hear the dead silence at night. But most importantly, David rediscovered his love for nature, which is what his final print is all about, aptly titled 'Look to Nature'. In his print he summarizes the various sketches and observations he made while enjoying the Danish country side.'' For more details see: Film & Edit: Mattia Abeni / Copenhagers Artist:
