Kristóf Róna is originally a sound engineer from Hungary, who had been playing music and working in this era since many years. In the last few years he was mainly concentrating on travelling and on finding new ways and channels for expressing himself. “I’ve found painting a really interesting way to express emotions and thoughts so that’s what I am mainly experimenting with at the moment.” – says Kristóf, who participated in our art project a few weeks ago.
“I’ve met Bea in Las Palmas while working in a hostel and later I was lucky enough to got invitation to her magical hostel, called Camino Art Hostel, where she also has some cave rooms for the guests. Here I’ve spent 10 days in peace, creating – painting, drawing, spray painting and writing – that I really enjoyed as the hostel is based in the green canyons of north-west Gran Canaria. The vibes and the sounds of nature gave enough inspiration to be able to focus on my art and create as much as I could. She also let me ‘occupy’ one of the caves to hang (as a temporary exhibition for visitors) all my works I made previously and the ones I made with a friend of mine (Heidi Tanner). There was always something new to discover every day so it kept my excitement going to remain inspired by my surroundings. Bea is a great manager with passion for art that she supports as much as she can, not getting lost in everyday life’s problems but the very details that matter so she can go with the flow and acceptance. I wish you all the best Bea!”
Kristóf is currantly in Budapest, volunteering in summer festivals all around the country, and trying to figure out his next move into the world. Please check his work below!
ALIONA YAROVICH, PORTRAIT AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER VISITED CAMINO ART HOSTEL NOT LONG AFTER IT OPENED. SINCE THAN SHE IS CONSTANTLY PLANNING TO RETURN AND MAKE DIFFERENT PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECTS AT THE HOSTEL. IT SEEMS, THE PLACE INSPIRED HER PRETTY MUCH! LET’S SEE WHAT SHE IS TELLING ABOUT OUR LITTLE EMPIRE:
“Camino Art Hostel is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I’ve ever been to. Knowing Beata, the owner, I can tell that this place is made with heart and soul and I think that everyone who is tired of busy life and things of that kind can take a break and go to this place. This place really brings you at peace and makes you feel in tune with yourself. This place inspired me to make my photography project ‘Dime’ about people all over the world and their stories that are worth sharing. I hope I can come back there one day and continue my project.”
Aliona Yarovich started to take pictures 5 years ago. She did different kinds of photos (events, weddings, children, individual portraits, fashion) and right now she is focused on portrait and family photography. She currently lives in St. Petersburg, Russia and travel quite often.
