With the task of painting a 330-foot-long grandstand that represents the overall theme of this years Roskilde Music Festival, artist Steven Powers discusses his process and challenges for this particular project. Powers also speaks on the difference of connecting with people being an artist opposed to being a musician. The Festival located in Roskilde, Denmark features large musical acts like Bjork, The Cure, Asap Rocky, and Bruce Springsteen, as well as numerous smaller independent bands.

Thanks to TED and Blaine Fontana for the video.
Blaine Fontana currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Imbuing his vision with the divine symbolism of religious myths, worldly folklore and current social dynamics, his works contain a kind of shamanic exploration of meaning that recognizes the totemic quality and power of the image. With extensive experience within the design world, including working as a designer for Felt Bicycles and acting Art Director for Zero+ Publishing, Fontana’s work displays a virtuosic understanding of sign & simulacra and their role within our contemporary visual culture. Straddling the physical and metaphysical, organic and architectural, painterly and graphic sensibilities, Fontana fuses multiple visual strategies to forge an aesthetic language entirely of his own making.
