Perhaps more than ever before, we as people have a powerful desire to return to a NEST,
a sacred, divine, holy place where we feel safe and secure, where we feel powerful, where we feel home. Each and every of us has a place like this, a real, pure, loving and caring environment to become isolated, to recharge and to be loved.
Have you found yours?
We are inviting you to reveal your NEST to the world! The contours of your NEST are limitless. It can be a photo of a real or a symbolic place, it can be a painting, a collage, or a sculpture, a textile, paper, or wood, and beyond. We want you to manifest and free yourself from your precious bubble, and to be proud of your hiding place, the sweet confines that protect you and have been protecting you in these unique times of history.
Maybe you have not discovered your nest (yet). We challenge you to IMAGINE ONE! To create one! and to share your dream with us! Every nest is a majestic one within itself.
So, we are accepting every type and variety of art piece(s), made with any kind of technique and material, in any size and shape. You can send your work in digital format to email@example.com, or bring the original until the 15th February (9pm) to Camino Art Hostel, or we have an address too in Las Palmas.
Each and every art piece will be presented. The jury will choose one artwork in each creative category (e.g visual, graphic, plastic arts..). The artists of the chosen pieces are welcome to our Artist Residency program in 2021.
“The Nest” exhibition will be held at Camino Art Hostel, from the 22nd of February, about the opening event we will inform the public later.
We are inviting artists from all around planet Earth, you don’t need to be resident on Gran Canaria to apply.
Daniela Isabela Nusitz (aka Kornera), a half Hungarian and half Gran Canarian artist is one of the oldest friends of Camino Art Hostel. She knows our story from the beginning and had been visited events for many years. We were happy to invite her to exhibit her psychedelic art doodles on the “Find love” exhibition in November, 2018. We asked her about creating art, and about the arty scene of Gran Canaria.
Camino: When did you start to create? What do you create? What is the form of your art?
Daniela: I started to draw fantasy worlds and things that were far from reality already in the early years of elementary school. I like to use many different techniques, colour pencils, ink, black pens, acrylic paint. And often I use many of them at once, combined.
Camino: What is the process of your psychedelic doodling? Do you have an idea before you start? Or it just goes with the flow and the spontaneous imagination?
Daniela: Generally, when I am not doing an ordered job I just let spontaneous thoughts and inspirations find me, which might arrive while travelling on the bus, or sitting on a boring mathematics class so I just start to draw. Or I try to create the forms from an interesting dream. These days I make more art inspired by anatomic or natural shapes and forms, and I add my fantasy world while drawing. Usually, I don’t plan, I just follow my inspiration and the flow of creating.
Camino: How can you fit art making in your daily life?
Daniela: Sometimes it happens that I got so occupied with the daily job that I can’t even touch the brushes for half a year. I wish I had time all the time to make art, I could have so many art pieces! But still, I have a sketchbook with me all the time, so when I have a moment, or I have finished with my daily tasks I can draw any time even at my work, or on the bus. I used to work in a tattoo salon when I had much more time for art, and I could spend more time with graphic design and drawing.
Camino: What do you think about the art scene, art making, arty inspiration on Gran Canaria? What is your experience? How do you see the art scene on the island?
Daniela: I live in the south, a little bit isolated from cultural happenings. Most of the time I have to work. Here in the south, there is not really an audience for art, especially not for psychedelic art. It seems that they are more realistic and are more interested in traditional local art.
Camino: You know Camino Art Hostel for a longer time, how do you feel about this place?
Daniela: I know the hostel from the beginning when it was still located in Hoya de Pineda. There are several programs and cultural events in the hostel time to time, and if I have time, I love to participate, I especially like live concerts and exhibitions. I know Bea and her son Benji for a longer time, so I really like to visit the hostel, and there is always a chance to get to know new people and artists.

2 exhibitions 2 concerts 1 occupation: find love
7th November, 2018 is your day to discover what love is. In real. Camino Art Hostel is happy to introduce two talented creative girls who make an effort to tell the secret.
Giuliana Marigliano is an Italian artist living on Gran Canaria. Her works mostly tell the honest story of intimate relationships. Not those juicy romantic stories but the real ones, cruel ones, beautiful and unrepeatable ones.
Daniela Isabela Nusitz (aka Kornera) brings us to her own world through her eyes. The half Hungarian half Canarian artist makes detailed mapping of one’s mind, in this case her own mind and feelings. If you follow her guidance through her doodle-kind psychedelic stories, you will end up at the same conclusions as Giuliana’s work: The love is for the Brave!
At the opening ceremony of these two unique exhibitions you can enjoy the live performances of two Hungarian music bands: the Vörösfenyő with its rock melodies and the Perro Azul Duo with those lively chansons that will bring a happy end of this Wednesday afternoon.
Snacks will be prepared and served by Cactus and Plate, a small home cooking venture, which always promises a real cuisine adventure.
The event starts at 4pm and is gratis. Camino Art Hostel is a child and pet friendly place, so you can arrive with your whole family.
If you buy any of the exhibited works you support the artists directly. Camino Art Hostel does not take any commission after selling the art pieces.
