ART BY MELIX.

April 13th, 2016

Let me tell you about this artsy project I have in mind…

IMG_5072.jpg

About a month ago I started painting on canvas. Quickly after, I asked Felix if he wanted to paint with me as it could be a fun thing to do together; and so we did. We made 3 different paintings in the last month, and we enjoy making them very much: they are nothing incredible, but they are the result of two people with different art senses, coming together to create something unique. 

We wouldn’t need to have all these canvas in the house as most of our walls are already adorned, but I thought it could be cool to sell them and donate the money to charity.

I’m thinking Felix and I could create an account on Depop together – Art By Melix – where we could sell about 3 each month, and make it so that all the money is directly donated with every purchase. They wouldn’t be priced very high, so people could easily afford them, but anything we can donate to charity always makes a difference.

What do you think about this idea? I think it could work for a few reasons: Felix and I would get to be creative and have fun, while people could get a signed piece to hang in their room as well as helping others.

Here is painting number 1:

We layered multiple colours together by splashing them on the canvas, mixed with water. It’s messy and vibrant.

 

Here is painting number 2:

I took care of the background shading while Felix made the design on top. Here you can really tell how different our aesthetic is, but it can still look interesting when combined.

 

Here is painting number 3:

In this one I absolutely love the background, which reminds me of a beautiful sky. We wanted to keep the focus on that so we simply stamped our hands, slightly off-centered.

 

This is all we have for now, as painting requires some time and we have pretty busy schedules. But I want to get some feedback from you!

I don’t know yet when we will put these for sale, probably in May so that will give us a bit of time to work on new ones and figure out all the details. I also don’t know for how long and how regularly we can make these for, but we are definitely going to try our best!

SO. What do you think?

Also, I would love for you to help us name each painting! If some of these images spoke to you, let me know what they made you feel and how you would title them.

Marzia.

    Hello marzia

    I would like to know what type/brand of paint do you use. I paint too but I use oleo… I’m looking for other type of textures, and experiencing with other types of paints.

    Regards

    Hello Marzia,

    Fellow artist here, I wanted to tell you, I LOVE them! Paintings number 1 & 2 really catch my attention. Number 1 feels dreamy and whimsical and would look amazing in any room with some succulents 😉 Number 2’s abstract and graphic and would look great in a modern room! Makes me feel edgy.. If that can be a feeling? Theres darkness and light within it. Number 3 is just as dreamy, if not more than number 1. When I view it, I feel light and airy but, at the same time, the hand prints feel trapped. Maybe as if you were looking through a window where the other side is so heavenly and you long to be there, so much so, you leave finger prints on the window from viewing. Hopefully this can help with the title ideas! I think its an awesome idea to create and sell artwork with all procedes going to charity.

    Sincerely,
    Christine

    This made me think of something though. I would love to hear you guys write music together too. no idea how that might turn out.
    btw, I think the paintings are a wonderful idea.

    Maybe the last one you could call “You & Me”, idk just a simple suggestion. Also, Great idea! This is not only good for you to help you practise you’re painting but also helpful to the charities you will donate the money too. 🙂

    I love these paintings! Usually I´m not that into abstract art, but these are a bit different…
    When I look at the first one i think of the sea or dreams from the ocean. Salty waves and long grass moving from the wind and the sun outshining everything, but in a very happy way.
    When I look at the second one I think of a little wooden house in the mid of a forest. Hiking and the smell of musk and the air after a rainfall. The sun sparkles through a few Raindrops hanging on a pine tree.
    The last one is my favourite. It reminds me a lot of a lucid dream. The pastel colours everywhere are like the dream in which you´re floating. Eveything is a bit viscous and dim. Suddenly the hands are reaching through the walls of your imagination and into your mind.
    I think all paintings are really dreamy, they make me feel kind of happy.

    You should call the third one with the hands that reminds you of the sky
    Something like
    Touch the sky
    Or
    Heavens touch
    Or something
    And the second one looks like marbles

    Also i love the idea and i’m so excited for what you’re gonna draw next.

    The first and third ones remind me of the sky as well. Also since you love the night skies, the painting really match with your personality too! It is a lovely idea to donate the money to charity! Have a wonderful day, Marzia!

    I know I’m quite late… I think your idea is great. I think you and pewds could say about it on a video, cause I’m pretty sure some fans would love to buy the painting, but they won’t know about it because they don’t know of this blog. I would name the last painting “Fingerprints on the sky” You are my role model and I think it’s great that both you and Felix are donating in charities 🙂 Have a nice day Marzia ❤ 🙂

    Hi,Marzia!
    Big fan from Russia here:) Your post on how your interests vary and you don’t want to restrict yourself really inspired me! Art by Melix is a fantastic idea, in my opinion. These pictures look really nice and make me feel so pleased:) I would call the one with your hand prints “Unity”. The way you guys match each other is depicted on the picture no doubt. So simple yet so deep. Love them all:) Keep your duo-painting up ❤

    Hello Marzia,

    I like the idea of you and Felix doing this together, I think it’s a great idea. The first one is very imaginatively and soft and so does the third one. But the third one has those hand prints that make it even more merrier and also a bit funny and it really catches my attention. The second one is very different from the other ones, it is abstract and modern. If you and Felix want to make more like the second one, I advice you to use less water, it will make it even more striking and in-the-eye. Very creative of you!

    With regards,
    Laura Snijders

    Hi Marzia!

    Uhmm, I was Just thinking that if you could make more videos of how to make stuff because i came from a very poor family and i was planning to help them out and sell things. But then i do not know how to make stuff and from the diys you made i already did all those and there is nothing else i could do.

    Thank you!
