About the Workshop:
Khaitama will be teaching you the art of Playnting (painting with drumsticks) to create both abstract and refined artworks, while visualising your thoughts and emotions. Music is a core component where participants can blast their favourite songs and Playnt to the rhythm of both their external and internal surroundings.
Participants will learn:
- Basic drum beats and the steps to deconstructing rhythm via the senses
- Colour theory and associations
- To enlighten and connect with themselves through an experiential art form
- The importance of having an artistic outlet to alleviate physical, emotional and spiritual ails
- How to build bonds and mutual understanding with others through communal art activities like Playnting
Guided hands-on participation will be carried out to reinforce the concepts and methods shared during the workshop.
Playnting captures the imprint of your subconscious reality. Every stroke and colour portrayed is an extension and reflection of you.
What will you discover about yourself?
About the Artist:
In February 2016, Khaitama invented an art technique which he later coined ‘Playnting’; a combination of Visual Arts, Music and Drama where one paints with drumsticks. This can either be done solely or in unison with orthodox painting tools.
Being a drummer himself, Khaitama can truly attest that drummers are constantly regarded as being in a world of their own when consumed by emotions as they perform a song. As such, he wanted to visualise the raw energy of a drummer and how their emotions are transferred via the drumsticks and onto the drums. The amalgamation of music and visual arts in terms of drumming and painting allows Khaitama to seamlessly express how they feel, be it his own or of his subject, through the fluid yet aggressive, and at times subtle, motions of the drumsticks.
Playnting is also a performance art where one ‘Playnts’ (Playing and Painting) to songs, visualises the drum beats and creates a piece that is spontaneous and original. His technique is very versatile — he can take his time to create an artwork, or speed paint it onstage as a performance art.
When viewers see his art, he wants them to feel the pure emotions that he has embedded within; to see Khaitama as how he truly is. At times, the splashes of paint through ‘Playnting’ are the main selling point, other times they serve as an extension to the emotions or message found in the overall composition. If it’s a live performance, the emotive act of Playnting is the artwork in itself that he hopes his viewers can identify with.
Ultimately with his artistic journey, Khaitama hopes:
To launch and spearhead a new art movement of multi-sensory engagement that is holistic and humane — for the purpose of each individual to better understand and empower themselves, as well as others. Playnting is an introspective and communal language which is therapeutic and lots of fun!
