nat in art land 1 – the red paintings

hey artlover and music freaks, i´ve been VERY busy, so i owe you some posts, but first things first:

do you know THE RED PAINTINGS ? i wrote about them in this blog earlyer.

i stumbled over this amazing band a few years ago, my friend devi, who also is a blogger ( go here:

https://kulturrausch.wordpress.com/) saw them at whitby goth weekend two years ago

and she was like: “natascha, we have to go to see this band, they have costumes and bodypainting on stage,and the music is brilliant!”,here is a bit more about that.

so on may 20 , the red paintings had an amazing show in hamburg at monkeys music club 

and my friend devi and i went there and i was happy to live paint with the band at the show.

i arrived around 8pm at the venue, got to the merch table to be brought to the backstage area. this really is not as exciting as it sounds, just a room with some mirrors and some old couches. the band was already getting dressed, alix was doing her make up, trash was getting his glow-eyes-skirt ready and i was handed a black morph suit and a mask. YAY COSTUMES! i brought some of my own paint, but they also had some (in the process of painting i mixed them later). they had no volunteer to be the human canvas this time,but i got a big canvas right next to the stage in front of the audience. the band started playing and my “job” during the first 4 songs was to walk through the people and creep them out a little bit. thanx to the mask i was wearing, that was a lot of fun. most people back off immediately when you come near them and look weird.

the music …oh the music, this band creates such beautiful music, it was really not hard to paint with this music. the music practically painted my painting…does that make sense?

i painted a treehugging girl on a bleeding tree, don´t know where she came from…well,yes i do…she came through the music!

THE RED PAINTINGS on bandcamp:

when i began to paint the blood dripping from the ripped roots of the tree the band stopped playing for a minute or so (it felt like forever) and trash was like: “*sigh…beautiful…let´s just stand here and watch the painting…” it was absolutely silent…i was so grateful to wear a mask,because i was smiling all around my head… it did not feel uncomfortable, it felt weird and great and i loved it ;).

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling

trash also loved the painting and they took it with them. i could do that every day, it was so much fun. a guy asked ME for an autograph, how weird is this?

well…if you ever hear about THE RED PAINTINGS in your town: GO THERE! they are an unbelieveable amazing band and they are currently on tour in the UK

THIS BAND IS AMAZING!

i saw them the first time two years ago opening for some other bands in hamburg at the KNUST and they blew my mind. not only the music is beautiful and powerful and intelligent, the stage concept is just brilliant. for every show they ask locals to be part of the stage programme as painter and human canvas to perform bodypainting during the show.

two years ago i was part of that show, beeing the painter. i got dressed up, got a mask and got to paint my friend devi right on stage. that was a great experience.

THE RED PAINTINGS need you

11214338_10153770205942952_6944472070700091929_n

hey artlovers,

most of you already know that i am a painter, but did i tell you that i had the great honour to paint on stage with THE RED PAINTINGS last year?

i am writing this blog because i want to do that again, someday in the future.

the thing is, there will only be a future for this band if you ALL help them…

here is how:

Greetings Red Children and the rest of humanity… we are TIME.

As many of you may know The Red Paintings are a #newdirt musical project that seek to involve all aspects of art and media through their live performances. With audiences from all over the world participating as painters and human canvases, The Red Paintings strive to build a community in which people feel free to express and liberate themselves. Through touring and releasing new material, the act are desperately trying to make ends meet to ensure that they do not suffer the same fate as many of their contemporaries. Their reluctance to begin proceedings for the second album is due to lack of funding, however, in a fast moving society like today’s, time is of the essence. As a result of this, we have taken matters into our own hands.

The purpose of this video is to inform you that as of the 30th March 2016, we are holding The Red Paintings for ransom in a secure facility at an undisclosed location. The band will not be released until enough ransom money has been raised through PledgeMusic to create their new album. The industry’s lack of funding and artist development has forced us to help them seek alternative means that enable them to continue their creative process. Thus far, The Red Paintings legacy proves that this is an act that refuses to admit defeat or cut corners at the expense of their art. It is their intention to bring you an album even more epic and ambitious than the first. Needless to say, this is no easy feat and you should not underestimate the challenge of this journey. The Red Paintings need you.

Your task is simple, but vital. By making pledges you will help bring The Red Paintings closer to a new musical vision. The pledges will be put towards the cost of studio time, musicians, engineers, mastering and music videos. In exchange for your investment, all pledgers will receive exclusive rewards determined by the amount you choose to pledge. When key milestones are achieved, pledgers will also be able to unlock exclusive content from within the secure facility. If these contributions successfully surpass the ransom amount, any additional funds over 100% will assist in the cost of touring and development of more complex stage shows.

These actions may be drastic but it is for their own benefit as well as others. The direction of this adventure is up to you. You have 60 days in which to complete this task. The Red Paintings’ fate is in your hands. Do we have enough time?

here is what you need to do:

go to http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/theredpaintings and pledge the hell out of this site.

THE RED PAINTINGS are one of my favorite bands and i want them to create music and to go on tour, their live shows are so great! they have living canvases and live painter on stage!!! sorry if i sound like a 14 year old, but this band is what i missed for so long. i often thought: why is there no real music beeing made nowadays? it is made, if we pledge, support, spread the word about indie bands and artists.

amanda palmer once (or twice) said: WE ARE THE MEDIA!!! so let us be the media and make this new record happen before TIME runs out.

DO IT!!!
