ENTRY and body painting: FREE.
On January 31st, 2014 Nomad opened it’s door for the first time. It’s hard to believe that our first 365-day journey around the sun is complete. It is such a short time, yet it seems that Nomad has been existing for ages. It’s because so much was going on here – so many first times, crowded gatherings, smiling faces, new friends, interesting discussions, mind expanding ideas, life changing activities. Since it’s inception Nomad hosted 6 exhibitions, 13 talks, 13 meditation sessions, 14 acoustic live concerts, 27 documentary films and even 41 ambient gigs. And there are more events coming, something we haven’t done yet and hopefully you haven’t seen before!
To memorize this milestone we are releasing a music compilation “NOMAD Ambient vol.1”. It will present songs of the artists who had magnificent gigs at Nomad and made it a precious place for ambient fans. You’ll be the first to get your hands and ears on the compilation.
During Nomad’s birthday party you will have a chance to observe Taksha Art working on his new painting and be painted by Adriatica and Hartmut M. Graf von Matuschka.
Adriatica: Adriatica creates unique Bodypainting and Make-up-Art. This form of painting establishes a very beautiful interaction between living canvas and the painter.
Hartmut M. Graf von Matuschka: Artist rediscovers the face. His style is both sensitive and original, perfected through 15 years of experience.
Taksha Art: Taksha incarnates his very own idea of life and world by Graffiti, Street art, Wall painting, Decorations, Architecture, Airbrush artworks and Media design.
