The Dance Painting
At Novica we compile an ever-growing collection of music and dance paintings by artists from around the world. Their compositions manifest the dance traditions of their country – past and present – resulting in a pictorial testament of tradition. Artists from Ghana adapt the styles of abstract painting to portray tribal dances to the beat of djembe drums. From Peru, varayoc priests dance to the melodies of the quena in colorful folk art paintings. In Brazil, neighbors dance on the streets during the festas juninas, and in Mexico, Catrina dances during Day of the Dead celebrations.
Artists are keen to detail dance paintings, as they are proud to share their homeland's traditions. Dressed in colorful costumes, dancers sway, stomp and swirl to the tunes of regional musical instruments.
