How to draw BALI BREEZEWAY

Today’s Bali Breezeway comes to us from Australian tangler Karen Bentley and it’s her first on the site.

Karen introduces herself and shares the inspiration for Bali Breezeway:

I am a long time Australian tangler and former student of CZT Michele Beauchamp.

I am not a CZT but have been tangling since 2012 … A few years ago I created Bali Breezeway but for one reason or another I have not gotten around to submitting it.

I was on holidays in Bali and tangling was my main form of relaxation.

The pattern is inspired by a breezeway brick that was in the hotel we visited.

Livia is from Southeast Asia, and believes one eventually acquires a slightly warped sense of humor from living on a tiny island that is just a single degree north of the Equator, since it’s always hot enough to fry your brains.

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard from Livia and I miss her kooky sense of humor and her unique style, fortunately we can all still enjoy her creativity by checking out all 14 of her fun and whimsical tangles on the site.

Bali Breezeway creates similar shapes to Warped Eggs but in a different way and it’s possible to vary it many ways with shading and solid patterns of ink.

Karen illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Bali Breezeway here on her blog where she shares a lovely photo montage of her vacation in Bali and this cool ATC monotangle featuring Bali Breezeway.

What is an ATC?

From Wikipedia:

Artist trading cards (ATCs) is a conceptual art project initiated by the Swiss artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann in 1997. He called it a Collaborative Cultural Performance.

Artist trading cards are 2+1/2 by 3+1/2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm) in size, the same format as modern trading cards (hockey cards or baseball cards). They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, exchanged and collected by the people who participate in the collaboration.

In 1996, Stirnemann began making small artworks the size of commercial trading cards. An exhibition of 1200 of Stirnemann’s cards ran at his second-hand bookshop and gallery INK.art&text in Zurich, Switzerland between 23 April and 31 May 1997. The exhibition ended with a trading session.

The ATC project was intended to allow people from different backgrounds to participate in an ongoing art project, which was not part of the art market. Selling or buying ATCs clearly contradicts the initial idea. Instead, people would meet at trading sessions and exchange their art work in a democratic face to face situation. Anybody can participate in the project and all techniques are allowed.

ATCs are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.), or even metals, fiber, wax and other materials.

A few weeks after the first ATC exhibition and trading session in Zurich, the Canadian artist Don Mabie adopted the idea and showed artist trading cards at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. In September 1997, a trading session was organized at the New Gallery in Calgary.

Today, there are regular trading sessions in more than 30 cities in Europe, Canada, the US and Australia. The Zurich and Calgary trading sessions are still held on a monthly basis.

If you’re curious to learn more, I suggest Googling “artist trading cards” and selecting the “Images” page linked at the top. Anything goes and there’s some pretty amazing art in a very doable size …

  5. "A Zentangle has no up or down and is not a picture of something, so you have no worries about whether you can draw a hand, or a duck. You always succeed in creating a Zentangle." Thus patterns that are drawings of a recognizable naturalistic or actual object, figure, or scene, are not tangles. A pattern is not always a tangle — here's what makes a tangle. TIP: tangles never start with pencil planning.
