We bet by now many of you are getting tired of the isolation routine. If you find it difficult to keep things interesting and fresh, you are certainly not the only one. To keep creative juices flowing and imaginations tickled, we thought of a little creative work-out for you. We want to challenge you for a creative competition that requires a concentration of mind and word mastery.

To find out more about the rules of the challenge, visit our Instagram blog: https://www.instagram.com/vacardadesign/

The challenge starts today and will only run for ten days.

We are looking forward to your entries!

While the covid-19 isolation lasts, giving us all extra time for reflection, my mind switched from my usual fresco-making techniques to exploring the technical opportunities of decorative plastering. I started with crafting finer details and images in landscapes and portraits – all the stories that I will be sharing with you soon. Here is the first experiment, a dreamy landscape painting, where I used pigmented Italian plaster and acrylic colour wash to create dense colours and draw controlled lines with an 8-inch trowel. The work is made on 50 x 50 cm canvas.

Thanks for watching!

PS. Stay tuned in to not miss it new and surprising work from the Studio!

The festive season is almost upon us, so we want to wish you a joyous Christmas and a happy New Year 2020.

For us, the year was packed with events, shows and interesting projects all the way up until this week. December has been all about art, nature and gold. Some of our favourite projects this month included bespoke mural and artwork commissions with a strong texture and floral appeal, and a special collaboration with Secretcape atelier for their showroom, featuring our custom plaster wall finish with lots of gold and festive shimmer.

We would like to wish you a very happy holiday season and we hope 2020 brings you excitement, harmony, beauty and lots of love in all that you do.

We look forward to seeing you in 2020!
