Amazing sculptor and automata creator Thomas Kuntz, legendary pin-up artist Olivia De Berardinis, and master event creator Bob Self, have teamed up to create an occult cabaret and bohemian art salon where practitioners and connoisseurs of the darker things in life can meet, mingle, and create!
They call it Spirit Drawing, and you can join them on June 3rd, 2017 in Los Angeles.
From the Spirit Drawing kickstarter:
Wait… What? Drawing Ghosts Is A Thing?
It is now!
Calling all fans of classic horror movies, haunted houses, Victorian spiritualism, and Grand Guignol theater! With your support, the inaugural “Spirit Drawing” get-together will take place in Los Angeles one night only when darkness falls on Saturday, June 3, 2017.
Seriously… A Haunted Art Happening?
Bob Self (Publisher of Baby Tattoo Books), Thomas Kuntz (Sculptor & Master Automaton Builder), and Olivia De Berardinis (Legendary Pinup Artist) had an idea… to gather a group of artists and magicians for an evening of creative inspiration and spooky entertainment.
“Spirit Drawing” will be a first-of-its-kind occult cabaret and bohemian art salon where practitioners and connoisseurs of the darker things in life can meet, mingle, and create.
You don’t have to be an artist or a magician to attend. In fact, there are only two prerequisites for ticket holders. You must be 18 or older and you must have an appreciation for things that go bump in the night.
If you are a curious and adventuresome person • If you love art and/or magic • If you enjoy the thrill of new experiences – You will fit right in with the ghosts and ghouls at our event. Artists are encouraged to bring art supplies. Conjurors are urged to bring the unexpected! Casual observers are cautioned to leave assumptions about reality behind.
What Will Happen When I Walk In The Door?
Event attendees will have an unprecedented opportunity to examine legendary artifacts from the seldom-seen “Carnival of Art & Magic” archives, including the actual disembodied head used by the infamous Mistress of the Phantasmagoric Skull during the height of her popularity as a spirit medium in the 1800s. The skull will be presented by fetish supermodel Ulorin Vex, attired in a manner reminiscent of the original Mistress who tended to perform séances scantily clad or in the nude.
You’ve Got To Be Kidding… Fetish Models? Disembodied Heads?
We are not kidding! Join us on June 3, 2017 if you dare! We promise the experience will be rewarding.
You may reserve your space through Kickstarter.
