One artist who is perfectly suited for a project on the scope of the Life Is Beautiful festival is Nicolas Shake. Shake focuses on discarded items that are reappropriated into sight-specific sculptures. Expect something spectacular as he transforms the rubbish from an extended-stay motel room into an installation in the Town Lodge Motel, which will be home to Life Is Beautiful’s The Odyssey: A Visual Art Experience. On the street-art side (called Rise Above), Zio Ziegler’s murals have a distinct tribal-like aesthetic using monochromatic colors that are identified by their repeated primitive patterns and distortion. Ziegler follows up what he did a short time ago on the Western Hotel wall.
