One Stop Poetry celebrates -"The Voice of Art" a closer look at Mitko Gogov



Carrying over the art and concepts of Mitko Gogov from yesterday. I wanted to show you some of the art that Mitko's students have created. 



The Voice of Art


The participants firstly have the opportunity to hear something about the sticker art and the different styles of creating them and during the time for workshop they had the chance to try to create pieces of art in which they will mix different materials as sprays, markers, paper, colors, stencils etc. For the one that were interested in vis a vis conversation I explain more about the old school graffiti, colorful, 3D, characters etc. 

My idea was to try to mix both styles on one board: Big stickers vs. Colors, sprays, stencils, composition. They were pretty interested in the idea also in the topic and all of them invent creative and unique ideas. 


I've done more than 10 courses (like the Voice of Art) connect  students with contemporary art. Basically, this is try to transform all the messages and ideas that we have as youngsters that are ready to take active part in the society through different art workshops.
Moving through this process is like moving through the real ideas, the strategy is the same, we learn about our possibilities, our ability to stand up for our idea.

what the students do
The students and the youth in general are people full of positive visions about everything that surround them. They can create perfect systems for the society in which they'll insert all the necessary things that are needed for the planet Earth safety just using their creativity (for example organic or recycled materials.)


what art is doing for them
Art is like an engine for them. I think that art should generate positive feeling in everyone. Planting art in the daily life of the youth in the society will make them more open and sensitive for real topics. Art in general motivates, inspires, makes the people more common with  nature and the inner soul. Art is changing the youngsters, with that, the society is changing too. ..more art more creativity and ecoLOGICal environment. 

What is your goal with your art workshops:

me as a person that leads this kind of activities/ workshops is motivation to share the information with the participants and to create an atmosphere where we can discuss and exchange our knowledge about art. Learning trough the people that are on same age as me for me is big challenge. There are ideas that one day I hope that I'll see realized. worth to be shown..with strong message that can change the consciousness of the human mind. 



what kind of media do you work with
I use different styles and techniques on my workshops. In basic they are all connected with the contemporary art ..but let's say I've done few workshops with organic and recycled materials. we create amazing expo of art installations and canvases with mixed materials. Painting workshops for expressionism, pop art, action painting. a lot of workshops for street art and the different styles that we see on the streets like stickers, stencils, graffiti, street illustrations etc.
besides these I've done few forum theater workshops also as classical and physical theater. Actually I start using some methods from the theater as energizers between the activities on the training courses or youth exchanges.
I've taken part of some multimedia and film workshops; some of them were part of  international film festivals.

I took the images as more than what was presented and constructed a short piece of Tanka. The broken circle was filled in by the colors presented and therefore became whole. Which then gave me an end and a beginning that are at the same point in time.

I am inviting poets to add a few relevant lines to a collaborative poem. I am also intending to incorporate weekly prompts into this poem as well which should be quite a challenge. The aim is to see how long I can keep this poem going without it being reduced to meaningless rubbish:) so a little input would be greatly appreciated. I am also a visual artist (collagist) and my work was selected for the cover of the anthology (Read Write Poetry).

Happy New Year to All!
