Visual artist Zwolle, The Netherlands
"I am an artist and I like it that way!" exclaims Tali.
Being an artist allows her to broaden her approach towards life and living. She often says, "Being an artist is a state of mind, and it has a very rich menu of possibilities."
After growing up in Haifa, Israel, Tali received her higher art education in Amsterdam's Rietveld Academy audio visual department. Even still it is nearly impossible to label Tali as a painter or an illustrator or an animator or a graphic designer, or even a performer. She uses all of these talents whenever she makes a presentation. She is very much a person that uses whatever it takes to get the job done.
Tali also has been at the forefront of the multi-media wave that is upon us now. With almost endless possibilities at her fingertips, she has learned to bring together different artistic disciplines in the most effective ways.
Communication through the arts is another powerful aspect of Tali's work. Art in the basic forms of painting, dance, and music, are key in communicating universally through non-verbal channels across barriers of age and cultures. This most understandable language is at the core of each of her presentations.
If you want to have a unique conversation about art, Royce Deans is the perfect person to talk to. Growing up in Chicago, he spent most of his life in and around the art world in one way or another. It was there he graduated from the American Academy of Art where he studied drawing, painting and illustration.
He met the two artists Tali and Benno through their multi-media show Mo(ve)ment when he interviewed them for his art/music magazine Copper Press. During that time he became attached to the show and before long he was traveling around the world.
As an accomplished painter that works in the solitude of his Michigan studio, Royce really broke new personal ground when he started painting on stage with Tali and Benno. He found he was able to find a new excitement working live in front of an audience, and fell in love with the energy that effects the audience and in return, how they effect the art. As a result he feels his own personal paintings have only benefited from this new experience.
Music as well has been a strong part of Royce's life, before painting with live music his record label, 54º40' or Fight! produced over 30 releases. Now he is a part of the music in a whole new way, painting with the rhythms or against them is yet another way he is an artist without boundaries.
Hübner was born in Zwolle, the Netherlands. He studied at the Dance
Academy in Arnhem and the renowned school ‘Amor de Dios’ in Madrid.
His dance vocabulary is certainly inﬂuenced by his academic background
and his Indonesian roots and personal body language are intermingled.
As Benno’s career has developed, he have focused on producing and
performing multi-disciplinary theatre pieces in which the dialogue
between the artistic disciplines of, theatre, music and visual arts is
