About BEAUTIFUL DISASTER, a note from the artist.
When you break life down to its simplest form, you are left with nothing but molecular material. these molecules are joined and linked together to create all that is around us, and within us. Thus giving us life, the duality of life and death, positive and negative, action and reaction, a beautiful disaster.

In this body of work, I tried to break down my traditional process and try to work in reverse. Almost like trying to write with your non-dominant hand, I struggled with the balance of negative and positive space. So often I use color as a buffer and segway into the subject of my work. Splashing color, letting the paint run and move and shift until I’m comfortable with a blanket of color before I even start to consider what to put on top of it. Then typically I freehand a design, or I specifically choose a direction, the execute my subject matter. This work, I broke down the normal routine, explore ways to open the mental process to new avenues of direction and inspiration. Then came the fun part – getting loose, freeing my form. Using excessive color, salt, spray paint, house paint, and even tempra to create the base work. Then Instead of using this as a backdrop, I worked with the random patterns and shapes within the layers of paint to find a fill for my subject. Using bold empty spaces, I created a void, an opportunity to realize the construct and architecture of what made my subject come to life. Bringing balance to the works I finished the statement by adding either cellular masses, which resemble not only the being, but the environment around them, as well as geometric patterns, which express the way that our own energy, life and actions would look in a 2 dimensional space.

Exploring free form: We all have good and bad habits, all learned through past behaviors. The beauty of free hand or “live” work is that the act of pure inspiration and creation comes from a place without habits. Dive deeper than the mental, deep within your psyche/DNA/ancestral lines, or WHEREVER your ‘make and break’ primal instinct has sprung from. once your are free from that per-conceived notion, we are open to formulate organic thoughts and concepts and therefore our creativity flows freely. Bruce Lee couldn’t have put it better when he remarked : “You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.”

ABOUT KAZILLA

As one of the top street artists that represent MIA, internationally renowned – KAZILLA is famous for creating true ‘performance art’. Painting live murals and works of art in the spotlight for a myriad of audiences, such as leading recording artists and their masses of onlookers, museums, exclusive events, major brands, print and TV. To most it would be a bit unnerving, asked to make a masterpiece in front of hundreds, sometimes thousands of eyes, all watching your every move and mistake. Using the pressure and constant critique to her advantage, Kazilla has mastered the art of “free hand”, “working your mistakes, instead of your mistakes working you”, “speed painting” and the “minute masterpiece”. The best part of KAZILLA’s “work” is that 95% of her live work is indeed free handed.

KAZILLA’s style bounds between the street arts and fine arts. A native of New Mexico, she currently resides & works from her studio/gallery in Little Haiti, Miami. After moving to the east coast in 2007, her work transcended street art, and combined her two styles of fine art and graffiti to create an edgy, colorful clash of two very different worlds. Often using various mediums to create her distinctive style, there is always a level of experimentation in every piece, keeping the work fresh and dynamic. Organic themes infused with feminine figures, surreal landscapes, geometric patterns and vibrant colors create a daunting visual feast for all audiences.

Although Kazilla brightens the Miami landscape with murals and street art almost daily, she is also a regular globe trotter – hitting the streets the world over to leave her mark, and her art. In addition to creating cutting edge street art, Kazilla also paints live at events for performers such as Wu-Tang Clan, The Marleys, Chaka Khan and Timbaland, and for brands like Adidas, Converse, Guess, Choice Hotels, Oxygen Network, & Societe Perrier to name a few. Her fine art endeavors include establishments such as the Museum of Art, both in Ft. Lauderdale and Coral Gables, Miami MOMA, and galleries in NYC, LA, DC, London, France, & upcoming in Dubai. In her off hours she also works as a performance artist, designer, muralist, photographer, producer, musician, philanthropist, and consultant.

Re-cap of Few and Far in 2013

FNF2013

Well… This was a very exciting year for us!! A lot of projects went on in 2013:
For example, We had a group art show in San Francisco. We were invited to paint large events and art festivals, We also got featured in a well known graffiti magazine called “Infamous”. We also are Working on some new videos that will be coming out soon!!. We did fun creative photo shoots with friends and F&F members.

We participated in large mural productions as a crew and separately all over the world. We even put on a skate jam with live art for youth. There were so many side projects we were a part of that we weren’t able to fit all of it in this post. To keep taps on what Few and Far is up to this year Follow us on Twitter /FB or IG @fewandfarwomen More info HERE on our work.
