It was so much fun being a D.I.V.A artist in residence at Electric Picnic 2016 – it was the first year they ever had an artist in residence. I was on site for a few weeks leading up to the festival, which was great as I got to see the festival come together from the beginning.
There were four artists picked for the D.I.V.A artist residency…. Me, Anne McDonnell, Pamela Byrne and Helena Doyle. We were each making our own artworks but using the same common theme – Mental Health awareness. I chose to work with the colour white, and butterflies – The Greek name for a butterfly is Psyche, and the same word means the soul.
I really enjoyed my #EP2016 experience, there is so much to see and do. The food stalls were especially amazing! I recommend a visit!
