What is this?

This blog will be a resource for recording thoughts, ideas, schemes, and anything else that develops on the way to forming a unified voice and center for the Charleston arts community. Everything presented here is subject to change.

How does this work?

There will be a designated set of authors who will be responsible for posting topics for discussion, to begin with anyone may comment on a discussion topic or suggest a new post but only the authors may post new topics (this is mostly to avoid spamming and over posting). In time this can develop into an online wiki or discussion board style web page of information and ideas, but at the moment a blog is the most direct, immediate and open way to track the development of the ideas being developed. if you have a suggestion or want to post please send email to

Hello fellow artists.
I just came across a really cool new technique that I thought some of you might be interested in checking out called TattooWall and UrbanTattoo.
If you have ever imagined having one of your paintings or photographs blown up to fit on an entire wall, ceiling, entranceway, bottom of pool... almost anywhere! This is how you can do it. Having been dubbed as the 21st Century fresco, this process allows you to take any image and make it any size and be used in almost any fashion to enhance an existing fa├žade.

TattooWall and UrbanTattoo have just arrived in the US and Charleston from Europe and one of the first certification classes in this process is being offered right here on the weekend of May 9-10. This weekend-long certification class will teach you everything from how to get the right image ready, how to apply the technique, and how to put the finishing touches on the final “mural.” I wanted to send out this information because I think something like this could help you to diversify what you are able to do with your artwork, and what you can offer your clients. The possibilities really are endless! You could create an entire scene in your living room, galleries and museums could use this to create or advertise installations, you could create an entire mural on the outside of a building, a smaller image above a fireplace, a big shark at the bottom of your pool, the list really does go on.

The 2-day class costs $695 and you do receive a certification after successfully completing the class.

I’ve attached a pdf about the class and some contact info below for those of you interested in registering. The class is limited, so if you’re interested, get in touch with them immediately. The class is being put on by Two Girls From the South. View a video of the process at www.twogirlsfromthesouth.com or contact them via phone (843.810.1000) email (support@twogirlsfromthesouth.com) to sign up.

Please feel free to pass this along to any interested artists you may know.
Thanks!
