Pabi – Artist / Denmark
“In my artwork I always seek to integrate my personal experiences from interacting with new people, cultures, environments or societies. Painting gives me the freedom of being the creator of my own vision. It is crucial to my creation process to be able to lose control of my material, and then win back the power. Much like reality. This brings an organic dynamism and unexpected correlations to my work. The road to completion of an art piece is not predictable, but will lead in many directions. With skill, vision, and coincidence, upon completion of a piece I often find that I have created something much more enriched than I initially had visualized. A process best described as serendipity. I do not believe in simplicity. I believe that everything is connected in a very complex and infinitely ramified world. In my artwork I use a mix of different elements such as humans, animals, nature, machines and technology. My paintings become systems and phenomena at the same time, in which the mix of known and unknown figures come to life and live and breed with and from each other. Everything is connected; nothing exists alone or can survive on its own. I constantly try to challenge our universal understanding of modern life. My most recent work involves antique medical posters. I believe they carry a universal truth of scientific knowledge. They symbolize the cornerstones of the human body and ecological systems we are a part of. Integrated within the images I tell stories about human behavior and discuss issues related to modern society and systems we are all active or passive in everyday. I draw connections between the inner and outer facets of these elements. I create a holistic picture of a complex and integrated modern world based on historical and scientific facts. My next ambitious project will connect me as an artist to the newest science technology. I want to print my own skin, paint with my own blood to create an art piece with my DNA. In this manner I can fuse the art with the artist. I have huge expectations for the project, because it will bring a new dimension to the way we understand ourselves as physical humans.” – Pabi

Wolf Price – Filmmaker / Palo Alto, California
Raised by photographers in Silicon Valley, Wolf decided at the age of 16 that he would explore the world. His goal: to walk a unique path while seeking influence from elders and other teachers. At that young age, he was awarded the prestigious California Arts Scholar of 2003 award for video, which garnered him a full scholarship to California State Summer School for the Arts. In 2011 Wolf received a 501c3 sponsorship through Inter-Nation Cultural Foundation (INCFworld.org). Wolf recently crowd-sourced enough funds to shoot for ten weeks in the Nepalese countryside. Featuring Nepali women and their on-going struggle for education and exposure to technology, the footage is both tragic and breathtakingly beautiful. Wolf Price has spent the last 8 years developing educational media and volunteering for social organizations. Through a broad range of progressive multimedia, as well as living a lifestyle that leads by example, he hopes to inspire people to dream big.
For his Nepal film, Wolf travelled to Nepal 7 times in the last 7 years. During that time he documented the evolving status of Nepali women. The aim of the film, says Price, “is to shed light into a variety of subjects. Primarily the realities of women’s struggles in Nepal which are very complex, sometimes progressive but often horrific. I would like the film to connect the viewer with these people and show their lifestyles and exceptional spirit.” He also “would like to demonstrate what can be done by one person about these types of problems”. The project began with a $500 donation, which enabled Price “to host a party for all 60 wives from a small village near Kathmandu.”
