The Universal Painting Project

We invite you to leave your mark! How will you interpret the lines?

Stare into the lace of dripped paint as it ebbs and flows over the white canvas. What resemblances do you recognize in the pattern? Participants take a print of this abstract drip painting and use color and shading to Extract a scene – like looking at clouds for images! Then share your masterpiece for the world to see.

The Universal Painting Project looks to exploit art for its most lauded attributes – harmony and unity. With each colorful contribution, this drip painting is imbibed with value and relevance to the communities from which the colorists herald as they will have used familiar color schemes and iconography to their respective cultures. Whether Mexican, German, Australian, even alien, all will find this abstract painting relevant because the Extractions will have been made by their very own artists, their celebrities, families, friends, even themselves. When each of us Extracts resemblances from the patterns of the Universal Painting, we leverage our varied and different visions of the world as a way to come together in agreement.
