Artist Hair Brush

To experience the most direct way to get the artist's DNA on the canvas, these 100% Homegrown, handmade Artist Hair Brushes were created. See how the unique pieces were made by the artist herself in a small, family owned brush factory in Burk, Bavaria, Germany. Special thanks to Thomas and Martin Hackenberger and Katrin Hubricht who were so kind to teach me the fine art of brush making: Kolibri Brushes

Human hair is not suitable for artist brushes because it’s powerless. But it’s a very personal way to get the artist’s DNA directly on the canvas. And: no animals were killed in the production of these brushes.

There is a small amount of unique flat Airco Caravan Artist Hair Brushes, sizes 8 and 22. They will be on display and for sale at Art in Redlight art fair, December 27-30, 2014, Beurs van Berlage Amsterdam. They can be ordered online as well: contact Airco Caravan. The brushes will be signed and numbered.

The making of: working in the factory with human hair, silver ferrules and wooden handles.
