Live Painting in Brazil - Tribe 7

For the seventh year, Brazilian brothers, Raphael and Fario Dahan, sponsored Tribe Festival, a series of the most successful day-long music and art events in their country. On December 15th, 2007, top international performers converged for Tribe 7. Over 25,000 people attended the recent concert held near Sao Paulo.

For the first time ever, Allyson and Alex painted together on one giant mural for the duration of the event. We painted for nearly 20 hours continuously, completing two sides of a four sided mural, 32 feet long and 8 feet high. The mural is on canvas stretched around a cube, allowing views from every vantage point. The last two panels will be completed in July when A & A return

Alex's art is the visual feature of this year's Tribe festivals. The stage for the concert was patterned after the frame around the painting "Nature of Mind" and enlarged symbols from the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM appear throughout the event grounds. A studio of artists translated the details of the "Nature of Mind" frame into huge sculptures. A dozen 20 foot high four faced angels held up the corners of the tent under which thousands of people danced, surrounded by enlarged CoSM inspired symbols from many world religions.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
