MALIBU, CA (October 7, 2015)
Santa Monica Beach on November 5th, 2015, Art 4 All People Malibu will host an interactive and intercultural eco art ritual performance by Turkish Artist Gulay Alpay to evoke a prayer of reverence, sustainability, and Aloha to heal the Whales and Oceans. This is the Turkish artist second eco art ritual performance (Whale Song) will feature, Gulay Alpay’s painted silk fabric. On the littered beach, Alpay and a group organized by Art 4 All People, a Malibu-based company that promotes Turkish artists in the U.S. will hold the silk banner aloft to flutter in the wind like a prayer flag, while others offer blessings and compassion for the whales and the ocean.
After the Art ritual, Art 4 All People is calling in YogARTians to the Wave of Compassion! Everyone is invited to join Art 4 All People for our third YogART (Yoga and Art) Flash Mob for compassion. What that means ~ is show up at the Santa Monica Beach Tower #9 with your Yoga Mat and all your friends and community members . Prepare to do a mass Art & Yoga action for Compassion for the World, the Universe, For Yourself, For All Living Beings through Yoga and Art. The eco performance and YogART Flashmob action will embrace the true spirit of Aloha to heal our planet. The real meaning of Aloha in Hawaiian is that of Love, Peace, and Compassion. Art 4 All People believes art is an empowering catalyst to foster the spirit of Aloha in all people.
About Gulay Alpay: Gulay’s urban art happenings—part art exhibit, part performance piece—inspire passersby of all ages to stop snapping photos with their phones, and participate in her pieces. Even her body becomes part of the canvas. At similar events held in public squares in Istanbul, Vienna, New York and London, hundreds of art participants engaged with her pieces or even picked up paint brushes to create a collective canvas. Gulay’s work, less high art than high purpose, blurs lines between artist and spectator.
NY Arts described Gulay’s paintings as “full of poetry, vibrant colors, and light.” Her rich use of color evokes the work of Kandinsky, Pollock and De Kooning. While her public interactive work scuttles boundaries between craft and fine art, viewers in the end are struck by its beauty and grace.
Gulay’s Big Island Hawaii event is presented by Art 4 All People, LLC, an arts advocacy organization and Center for Art, Creativity, Consciousness and Well-being in Malibu. For more information and images of Gulay’s work or on Art 4 All People, visit: www.gulayalpay.com or www.art4allpeople.com
