Colombian tattoo artist and shop owner of Fluink Studio. Andres Flu ambitiously opened up his own business in order to set his own standards and create a space that was important to him and his team.

We were intrigued by his drive to not only be a tattoo artist but also to open up his own shop in Medellin after being fairly new to the industry. He gave us a great interview of the challenges that came with that decision but also how it helped create the environment that is the healthiest and most motivating for him. Enjoy Episode 17!

Artify Jaco is an organization that is beautifying their town through art installations and murals while supporting international and local artists.

While researching artists in Costa Rica, we came across Artify Jaco and really fell in love with what they were doing for their city Jaco. Interviewing Wendy, we learned that Jaco is a somewhat sleepy town usually either being bypassed by tourists or not holding much to its name other than surfing and yoga. A casino lives in the middle of the main street giving this city’s reputation a place for party goers. Wendy and Stuart, started this organization with the intention of making Jaco more accessible and colorful by hiring muralists locally and internationally to bring more art to their home. This is a great organization that helps their community value art and hopefully inspire others to beautify and contribute to their hometowns and public spaces. For more information please visit their website and find out how you can help continue their amazing work!

Bertha Liduvina how art has helped her transform though various stages in life

Bertha Liduvina lives in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. An artist and creator throughout her life but newly discovered how her work has helped her through various periods of change and growth in her life. Now in her 60’s, she has found new inspiration and meaning to her work.

We arrived in Puerto Escondido and had just settled into our Airbnb ready to begin working on our next episode. Our host Betty knocked on our door unexpectedly and invited us to join her on her Palapa for some mezcal. Since we were always in the mood to drink mezcal and interact with new people we were pleasantly surprised to find she herself is a creator in poetry and music. While Betty never quite pursued art as a career, it has always been a part of her life, and now in her early 60’s she has processed its various stages and meanings and growth. We shared so many wonderful conversations with her about life and art that by the end of our time in Puerto Escondido we couldn’t find a reason not to invite her to be a part of our series. We hope Betty’s episode will inspire those to continue to create no matter what stage of life you’re in, and to help those understand the true importance of creating art. Enjoy episode 13.

 Kikyz1313 and Rodrigo Cifuentes have both been internationally recognized and gain much popularity in their art. Here they give us a honest and insider look to the realities of both being full time artists. 

Located North of CDMX Kikyz1313 and Rodrigo Cifuentes reside in Querétaro with their two adorable cats (the black and white one was more interested in us) and both pursue their careers in art. Rodrigo is an oil painter while Kikyz uses various materials such as graphite, pastels and watercolor. Both are incredibly talented in their own that we decided to try something new with their episode and focus on each person individually while also interviewing them together as a couple. They both gave us great insight into the true nature of being full time artists, watch video below! Enjoy!

Welcome to Under the Canvas’s website! We’re so incredibly excited to begin this journey and hope you love it as much as we do. Here’s a little insight to our goals for this project:

Art is very much a big part of everyone’s life, but thinking about it further it is much more than just a hobby or a job, It is an extension of the words we cannot seem to say, our feelings that we can’t quite grasp, it brings us to life, it moves us, it’s an outlet for our emotions, and we do it because we love it, but also because it helps others understand how we see the world.

B and I are excited to not only explore the beauty of the work that is created, but also the process of what it takes to accomplish such amazing pieces. Our intention is to discover local artists as we backpack around the planet. While the art itself is an incredible piece of work, a lot of the process of how to get to that finished level is also a story worth showcasing.

Here’s a little insight to the the complexities of the mind and how our creators overcome their most challenging self in order to produce such artwork.

From this website you’ll be able to stay up to date with all of our current videos posted from our YouTube Channel and some of our favorite photographs and summary of the process, as well as information on how to contact the artists we feature along with any upcoming projects/events they may have! we hope you enjoy this journey with us! Stay Tuned!
