Hello there this is my first post on kontigobatik.wordpress.com. I am very excited to be part of this artistic community.
I guess my most urgent feeling is the urge to create, that has been put aside by our holidays in Melbourne.
I have been doing small projects but they are rather boring compare to Batiking.
Batik is an ancient art…some pieces has been tracked to old Egypt where the hand painted natural fabrics were created for the royals and their families. In those days pigments were like gold and the most exquisite was blue…reserved only for the king.
In this blog we are trying to communicate our love for creating exciting pieces of art in our everyday lives….. creativity is one of the forces that pushes our constant desire to paint…inspired by our environment and the satisfying force of the job well accomplish.
