Lightfast 26 - November/December 2020


Dear friends of finest artists‘ colours!

Let us light up the dark season with bright colours and creative works! In this newsletter we would like to present some beautiful Christmas offers. In the new section “Colour in the focus” we illuminate two particularly popular colours.

We also have a new interview with an artist for you and present the well-known Berlin urban sketcher Gris, whose unconventional style creates inspiring moments. All links to his work, clips and workshops are of course included.

We wish you a good pre-Christmas season, stay creative and healthy!
