On the Big Island of Hawaii, October 29, 2015, Art 4 All People Malibu at their Annual Art and Yoga Retreat 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 eco art ritual performance (Whale Song) will feature, Gulay Alpay’s painted silk fabric. On the bluffs, 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.
Simultaneously, the organizers, Art 4 All People Malibu will make a global callout for people to take a meditative action on October 29th, 2015 at sunset with the intention to heal and revere our Oceans. The eco performance and global meditative 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.
