Welcome to the world of Melani Loop. A world of imagination and creativity. None of this could have happened without you.
So good exploration.
In 2011 I started working with Tattoos or Tattoo in parallel with my studies in Fine Arts (PTET!). Over the years, this art has taken various forms, depending on the people I address and the circumstances in which I find myself.
My priority is to enjoy it!
Each tattoo is unique, because it hides a part of you and a part of my psychosynthesis, something that requires cooperation and understanding. The style of tattoos I create has a common element, the organic, free lines or otherwise “crooked”. From the beginning I was in the tattoo industry, everyone was talking about how important it is for an artist to know how to draw straight lines. So I got stubborn and tried day by day to get better at it. When it came time to do it, I realized that I liked the “crooked” ones.
I appreciated the free, irregular, abstract lines because the ones I create are different from each other and they all have a unique quality of emotion that is captured at any given time.
Painting for me is my voice.
What I can not say in words, I have learned to paint. It is an integral part of my life.
I have dealt with various techniques over the years and I am excited to learn new ones.
Lately I have developed my personal style where it consists mainly of free abstract lines and bright colors.
Sketching is the beginning of everything. My need for instant expression is fulfilled with a pencil and a paper.
The medium changes from time to time and the pencil becomes a marker, etc.
At some point in my life appeared the pen, an old forgotten object, from another era.
I dipped it in the ink and drew my first line. At that moment I fell in love. I knew in my heart that my lines would never be the same again.
Enchanting with its movement and curvature, I felt like we were dancing together on paper and depending on the energy I gave it changed shapes.
For me, Performance art first appeared in 2015 at the School of Fine Arts in the subject of Art History. More specifically in the subject of Feminist Art of 1960, and the way women began to express aspects of their feelings through their body. This motivated me to explore the subject more in my own perspective, with my degree (Woman as a Subject and Performer) and to express myself through my image, body and movement.
Performance art is a way of expression that helps me express aspects of myself through deverse roles, which in my daily life are not possible to express. Personally it’s a way of decompressing and every time I create a role and get into that process, it’s feels like a ritual, a way of catharsis.
Performance art is a performance presented to an audience within a fine art context, traditionally interdisciplinary. Performance may be either scripted or unscripted, random or carefully orchestrated, spontaneous or otherwise carefully planned with or without audience participation. The performance can be live or via media; the performer can be present or absent. It can be any situation that involves four basic elements: time, space, the performer’s body or presence in a medium, and a relationship between performer and audience. Performance art can happen anywhere, in any type of venue or setting and for any length of time. The actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work.
