A unique art concept conceived by the international artist Colin Sinclair. The innovative model is based on his vast experience in various avenues in the creative world which expands from theater and stage performance to dance, choreography and fashion design as well as film making, photography, music production and script writing.
The idea for this new project raised from his personal experiences in these artistic fields. Discovering that being an artist has two sides: Having the artistic freedom and being at the mercy of the spectator.
These conflicting aspects lead to the following conclusion: Being an artist means being courageous!
As a result of this awareness he was compelled to create a supportive platform for every kind of artist such as painters and designers, writers or film makers, musicians, poets and performance artists for example. Through this they receive the rare opportunity of creative and individual development, constructive feedback and more self-confidence in their own creative work via a secure foundation and art loving atmosphere.
Presenting their creative work to a wider audience can be metaphorically seen as an open heart surgery. As every artist knows putting their heart and soul into the work leaves you vulnerable and at the mercy. Open Art Surgery encourages the artist to be ‘open’ to experimentation and risk taking, so that creative hearts can beat faster.
