What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

This is the art project known as Home MuralFest. For the project, 67 artists simultaneously painted murals in their homes and their outdoor spaces. It was conceived by Copenhagen-based muralist Jacoba Niepoort. She got the idea after her travel plans and mural projects were canceled because of the virus.

“I had been dreaming of methods for connecting individual, like-minded creatives who share common dreams within this multi-layered/directional world of art in the public space. When quarantine hit, I wanted to use the spaces we were in to create parallel individual works.”

-Jacoba Niepoort on This is Colossa

Niepoort told her idea to fellow muralist Axel Void, and the two created Home MuralFest. Each of the participating artists painted all throughApril to decorate blank walls in their space.

You can see all the murals on the Home MuralFest project website. You can also follow Axel Void on his website and Jacoba Nieeport on Instagram.

  3. These are all fabulous. The quilt and the green face are my favourties. I love that people are harnessing their creativity as a salve during the pandemic. I am definitely grateful for the stress-busting qualities of my art time.
