August Art: Acid trip to the trailerpark

Richard Colman at Trailerpark

Jul 30-Aug 1; Enghavevej 80, Cph V; 225-500kr;

The Trailerpark Festival brings you a range of amazing artists this year, among them Richard Colman.

The San Francisco-based artist is famous for his pictures of female bodies painted in strong unnatural colours.

For the festival he (among others)will design a trailer in a pycho-colour, art deco style – even imagining that feels like you’re on an acid trip.

Getting a one-day ticket for 225kr gives you the opportunity to stroll around the trailers and to enjoy some of the concerts that are taking place at the festival too. (LK)
