My recent residency at Alex's place was truly exceptional. Alex responded to my interest in painting a mural promptly, and we quickly arranged a video chat to discuss the project and alignment with the house's aesthetic. Alex carefully reviewed my portfolio, envisioning how my help could enhance the space. He possesses a remarkable talent for recognizing artists' strengths and nurturing their creative spirits.
During the initial days of my stay, Alex was away, but he ensured I was well taken care of. Another wonderful Workawayer was managing the house, providing me with three delicious vegetarian meals daily, a comfortable bed in a shared room, and hot showers. Alex maintained clear communication while he was away, guiding and encouraging me through the planning stages of my mural via text. He was supportive and gave insightful feedback which propelled my creative process to new heights, for which I am immensely grateful.
Upon Alex's return, the house buzzed with even more creative energy as fellow artists joined the residency. Sharing meals and conversations with these like-minded individuals was a highlight of my experience, underscoring Alex's talent for fostering a community of thoughtful creatives.
in 7 short days, I managed to complete one of my most cherished murals to date. This accomplishment stands as a testament to the nurturing environment Alex has cultivated at his residence, providing artists like myself with the space and support needed to thrive. I wholeheartedly recommend this Workaway experience to any artist seeking inspiration, growth, and a sense of belonging within a supportive creative community.
