Vanesa Alvarez Diaz: Painted Poetry

at The Six Foot Platform

The live painting Painted Poetry mixes visual art with live painting and poetry. It will start by creating a stage, painting two large live canvases on each side of the platform, inspired by various poets and various languages. Once that first activity is finished and the stage is created, the poet Marcos de la Fuente will recite poetry on the platform, while the artist paints his white jumpsuit.
