Chaos as Creative Fuel — Be Ready When the Muse Arrives

How do you turn external turmoil and internal struggle into order and beauty? Call it the process, workflow, or the ‘muse’ — the creative mind is fueled by chaos, and those who can successfully harness it walk the line between light and dark. Visual fine artist and muralist Bekky Beukes is both fed and consumed by her work, allowing her process to completely take her over in order to create stunning collections that visualize this chaos. She shares her work and the journey it takes to create it, from the vision to the physical and emotional sacrifice required.

About the speaker

Bekky Beukes was born and raised in South Africa and immigrated to The United States in 2014. This personal revolution allowed her the unexpected opportunity to explore her intrinsic love for painting. Known for her emotionally charged pieces, she’s intrigued by the notion of combining opposite matter and creates unnatural collaborations between form, exploring the relationship between dark and light. Bekky exhibits her work throughout Tampa Bay and is a confirmed artist for SHINE 2018.
