Event Review: Raw Artists, May 2nd!

RRawEventAW: Natural Born Artists hosted an innovative Hollywood event last Thursday May 2nd. The organization aims to provide independent artists with the tools and resources they need to "inspire and cultivate creativity."

The RAW show cohesively integrated a dance-party atmosphere with art, fashion, music, film, photography, and performance. The event showcased over 20 artists from all disciplines who displayed their work in the 10,000 square-foot creative space of Level 3 in Hollywood.

5.2 RawEvent nicoletteSpearArtists and event-goers connected over performance art, live music and an interactive gallery throughout the night. A local DJ spun new takes on popular music as the runway-show showcased featured local RAW artists. Fashion and jewelry designers were at the forefront of the show and featured collaborations with make-up artists to provide a mystical ambiance.

A hair and make up station was conveniently set up for partiers to go all out in glitz and glam to fit in with the runway models eccentric style. The art gallery featured painters, photographers and jewelry designers including Nicolette Spear (see image) whose surreal and imaginative pieces reflect the human condition while paying special attention to texture and geometry.

RAW events are featured in 57 countries and their once a month showcases are not to be missed!
