ABOUT:

THE DREAM BIG PROJECT

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” – Einstein

The Dream Big mural and mixed media works of art were created thru the support of the Artist in Residence program at LILA (The International School of Los Angeles) with Greg & Jude Beylerian. 160 students from third, fourth and fifth grade collaborated to “Dream Big” and explore the possibilities of their imagination as a tool of value that is applicable to any field or career path. Einstein said that the imagination is more important than knowledge, thus this project emphasizes the insight he was referring to. The Dream Big  project emphasized the importance of practicing art exercises to nurture imagination as a means to becoming innovative contributing members of society.
The students were first guided thru a creative visualization process, then organized into brainstorming groups. Each student learned to collaborate and co create a vision, bringing their consious dreams into reality using the mediums of sketching, watercolors, pigment inks, styling, costumes, hair & make-up and a photography studio shoot, all accomplished in 3 sessions. Each child visualized where they would be placed in their constructed artwork, what they would be doing and wearing. 160 kids were photographed individually and according to their artworks vision and then photoshopped into their respective places within the art.
Every child fulfilled each step of the process, thus completing the full scope of the project. The satisfaction of bringing an idea to reality was a satisfying experience shared by everyone involved. From art, medicine, science, entrepreneur, etc.. It is the dreamer who bring their visions to life that give us the magic of the world we live in today, this is the message of The Dream Big Project..

8 Exterior Art murals installed at Metroplex Theatre

Buena-park-metroplex

INFO:

  • Eight artworks created each measuring 10 feet x 20 feet  permanently installed on the exterior of The Buena Park Metroplex 18 Theatre. There are a total of 14 pieces installed around the building.
  • THE CONCEPT –  Was to create a play on the movie poster format by first defining 8 cinematic genres: action, comedy, drama, horror, fantasy, musical, romance, western. Each genre poster would represent in a colorful multi medium visual language, the experience of falling into a good movie. Therefore the moviegoer in their seats becomes the central characters as portrayed by costume and demeanor. The background is filled with other movie goers who are experiencing the emotional reactions provoked by the film as represented by their facial expressions. The overall visual dynamic was designed to be playful, light hearted and filled with visual details to be discovered by movie goers and returning customers who might find new details each time they look at these large scale works.
  • COSTUME DESIGN – Judith Bodart Beylerian – Every costume down to the last detail was designed and made by Jude. The details are easily viewable on site as the images stand 20 feet tall.
  • Architect: Perkowitz + Ruth

Mural of Hollywood installed at The Buena Park Metroplex

Hollywood-Mural-art

INFO:

  • Commissioned for The Buena Park Metroplex 18 Krikorian Theatre, Buena Park, CA.
  • Size: 30 feet by 40 feet.
  • Medium: Specially developed process using archival inks on a spun back canvas.
  • Architect: Perkowitz + Ruth
  • The theme for this mural reflects on the name of the theatre “metro” hence choosing Hollywood as a cinematic metropolis worthy of depiction. This portrait of Hollywood captures a loosely accurate geographic layout of the city, overlapping actual maps, significant architectural components and the more intimate emotional dynamics of “the dream”. Rich colors and plenty of hidden icons and messages allows for those waiting for their movie to start to gaze into the large mural and have fun discovering.

  • Size: 30 feet by 40 feet.
  • Medium: Specially developed process using archival inks on a spun back canvas.
  • Architect: Perkowitz + Ruth
  • The theme for this mural reflects on the name given to the theatre “metroplex” which inspires a triptych mural about one of my favorite Metropolis’s and my home town, New York City. The hyper tragic event of 911 was still an open wound in my heart and many others and so it finds its reference in this work. There are many icons and symbols, some hidden, including a profile photograph of a particular person sitting in the back of the taxi cab. These details and many others are only viewable on the actual size work due to the grand scale of the piece.
