About

This project - is a wish for the next year. 

It has 12 wishes with Karina's artworks available as high quality prints and scarves, 12 different variations  for the whole upcoming year.  

Nearly 8 years in the making, Karina Eibatova´s series of 12 of artworks is finally ready:

 

Basically the project is like a calendar made out of posters and scarves, although it has no dates, on the posters there are 12 positive wishes and a line for your aim, that you have to make yourself for each work. This calendar collection is not about dates, it is about actions, goals and wishes. 

For instance on the one with mineral which has a wish "Crystallize your mind" we wrote an example :

"Meditate daily"

This gives the audience the opportunity to bring more value to the print, to receive a message through art and to make a goal for the month, which can be inspired by the artwork. Since all pictures around us effect us in a certain way, I decided to let them have more sense, to remind us about something good, to motivate and inspire, to become better in the upcoming year.

The collection of artworks will be printed on textured paper, so it looks more like as an original artwork, which was created either with watercolours or simple pencil.

All prints are hand signed, printed on a four colour, digital offset system.

The size of the print is A2:

42 x 60 cm  / 16,5 x 23,5 inch

paper: Fedrigoni, Tintoretto Gesso 250g.

 

The Mushroom explosion has a wish "Be unique and connected", so we wrote the following example:

"Smile to strangers", a good notice of connection with people.

 

The other one has a wish about all the beauty we find in Nature, "Discover the nature´s gifts", so we wrote:

"Plant a tree" as an example. 

 "Be 1000% organic" inspired us to write the following example:

"Eat healthy" as a reminder. 

 "Be spontaneous" inspire us to write the following example:

"Dance every day!", well, why not?

In the collection of prints, there are two Crystals, just because one is better then another, you decide which one.

Here we wrote the following very brave example:

"Let go of fears".

      Other variations of prints are on the bottom of the page (!) Documentation of the project was done with prints printed on a usual paper, not the textured one. Prints will look more like the original artworks and the quality of the printing will be better, the same as here on this print:

 

Here are 12 wishes written in the same order as in the preview of all the artworks shown in the beginning.

 Choose your favorite artwork or a wish and then look for a reward. 

There are some of the wishes in the lyrics of the song "Blossom" which the muse and the model Katie Shikhova sings for the video. She created it together with her friend Dmitry Larionov. She will sent this wonderful song to everybody who will support the project, so you can enjoy the upcoming year listening to a new song and get inspired! 

You can get a song, which is an audio message for 2017 with 12 wishes. We wish you to aim high, to find the life´s purpose, to feel the Universe, to blossom, to be unique and connected...

 

Karina and Katie started to work on this project straight away after their acquaintance and it is their first project. They went to Austrian Alps specially for filming the video for Kickstarter campaign.

  

 

Size: 75 x 75cm / 30 x 30 inch; material: chiffon.

Scarves can remind you about my wish for a month and your aim that is written on your print. Here is a chiffon scarf, this model of the scarf is in the video. 

Here are some life examples of how to wear scarves, they are light and have matt texture.

 

 

 

 

 The same scarf in different ways of wearing it.

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 You don´t necessary need to wear it, it looks great while hanging and waving on a wind.

  

Here is some information, before you see the additional rewards.

About me.

I started to draw when  I was a kid, as everybody, the trick is that I had never quit. My main tools are just a simple pencil or a big set of watercolour and paper. I love drawing, but I also feel very excited while making videos, so I was happy to create a beautiful video for this project. 

I have been studying Art in different places:

  • Fine art education in Sweden.     
  • Theory of art in Moscow.
  • Fine art in the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. 
  • Fine art in the Cen­tral Saint Mar­t­in’s Col­lege in Lon­don.                                                         

However my graphic skills are not coming from those art institutions and not welcomed there, so I prefer not to show my main works there.

Portfolio

My profile on Behance.net  has been very active for years. Well, almost all of my projects has been added to the online gallery.

And here is my website .

Inspiration

I looove Nature! I am into living in the mountains, swimming in the sea and watching the night sky full of stars. I believe in the power of the Universe and deeply inspired by the Space, just thinking about the scale and the endless movement in it makes me feel very excited. Nature makes mу feel happy, thats why all my art is dedicated to Nature, to celebrate it's essentiality pureness and authenticity, I draw and paint only organic objects.

Why I need your support?

Because if the project will be funded, this collection of 12 artworks presented as a Calendar will remind people that it is not the days what counts, it is the action, the ability to make good things done, to feel better. Normal calendars hanged on the wall remained in the past century, so it is time for something new.

Because Karina and Katie want to share their creativity with the world, they want to inspire people. Once Katie got very inspired by the project, so she composed a song together with her friend Dmitry Larionov, the creators wonder how many more people will respond and also get inspired by the project "Best wishes, 2017". 

And because over the last years Karina has been very successful over the internet, but her artworks mostly remained online, so she decided that the time has come for her creative energy and inspiration to meet the real public. She thought its best to make it not through the galleries and world of contemporary art, but through the global community, making her art less elitarian  and closer to public.

 

Some more rewards for your choice:

 Those two originals were created with watercolour.

"1000% bio" size: 40 x 30 cm / 16 x 11 inches

 "1000% bio" size: 75 x 55 cm / 30 x 21 inches

size: 30 x 21 inches / 75 x 55 cm.

 I am teaching art online on the platform Skillshare and I have been successful there as a teacher, so this can confirm that I can teach.

Here are my online classes

 

I will come to your city in Europe and share my knowledge about art and artistic techniques. Class will last 4 hours, will be divided into 2-3 days. 

 

 

 

The unique book with the real story of the project and hand made drawings & painting. The real story of the project is extremely intriguing and highly secret, it is almost like a fairy tail. It has everything in it.

The cover of the book will be decorated with an abstract painting like in Karina´s studio in the last frame of the Video. Also in this little book, beside the story, there will be some little cute detailed drawings made by hand and related to the story, some drawings like those:

 "Tasty experience", pencil on paper.

"Nataliya Vodyanova´s portrait", pencil on paper.

You will get an email which contains an overview of all the models once the project reaches the end and after your confirmation of the choice, the items are carefully rolled and packed and shipped in the tubes.

Timeline

The digital rewards will be delivered in December, even if the project will not be funded, I would like to share the backgrounds anyway. 

We are planning to produce all items by the middle of January and ship the items in the end of January 2017.  

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Potential setbacks and challenges:
Setbacks can happen at anytime in business. The important thing is to be prepared. Some sizes can be slightly different after the production.
I understand that everything does not run according to the plan all the time and that it's important to be adaptable and stay positive when confronted with challenges.
Shipping is usually a big issue with fulfilling different size items. However, we are working closely with several courier services worldwide to ensure a seamless transportation.
