Event description

Description

Neon Naked presents a collaborative exploration drawing class combining creative UV life drawing and traditional shibari techniques!

Nik Nightingale is a creative rigorous and caring shibari artist, his practice involves bold contemporary calligraphy and interactive installations. Françoise is a conceptual performance contortionist and body artist. Her work focuses on utilising her body and is composed of mixed media; including contortion, fashion, video, aerial arts, and rope bondage. Nik & Françoise started tying together in Januar 2019 and ever since they work together on immersive shibari performances and installations. They re going to present a very special edition of neon naked, using neon rope and wax. The guests are invited to witness a duo that is wonderfully attuned to one another and capture a smooth dynamic between the rigger and rope model.

This class explores creative drawing, moving away from the perfectionist traditional teachings of life drawing. By trying out a number of different image making techniques from continuous line to pointillism the artists are encouraged to think outside the box and create more unusual imagery.

As described in TimeOut Magazine as 'The bizarre class to end all bizarre classes returns, looking like a cross between a Full Moon Party and an afternoon at the Royal Academy. This evening of sketching is really your chance to experiment with drawing in all manner of colours and textures, as you scribble your impressions of artists daubed in UV-reactive paint and covered in glowing lights.'

Neon Naked is a new and unique life drawing experience that specialises in creating unusual and creative designs by using vibrant and bold living sculptures. By combining an industrial UV light and reactive body paints with hand crafted flamboyant accessories its easy to get the creative juices flowing.

The class starts off with some quick and fun drawing exercises to get you warmed up. Then goes into longer drawing times with more exciting life images, experimenting with colour, light and texture.

Art supplies are provided however please feel free to bring your own. With essentials such as pencil, paper and drawing boards but also you can use the fluorescent glowing neon pastels to really make your art pop!


Neon Naked Life Drawing with Emma.


No experience needed, its not like most people have done it before either. Help is always available if you get a challenging pose.

Its fun and friendly with a chilled out atmosphere.
A great affordable evening out if you want to try something new.




All designs and accessories are created by Jylle Navarro who has been specialising in UV reactive materials and performance art for many years.

The Doodle Bar has been described as 'The Doodle Bar is a bar and events space where people have the freedom to enjoy a good scribble, play a game of ping pong, peruse the market and enjoy some street food.'
