LOVE IS ART was founded by Atlanta based artist Jeremy Brown in 2008. Brown began making paintings through this process in college after being inspired by the late 1960's French artist Yves Klein, who would cover nude models in paint and gently press then against blank canvases. One day, a close friend complimented him on a painting that was hung inside his house. After discovering how the painting was made, she asked him to provide her with everything she needed to make a painting with her husband on their anniversary. Brown put together a small package with all of the materials needed and wrote a little directional note for them to follow. They absolutely loved it, and the idea was born.
Brown then spent time researching & developing the appropriate materials to ensure a safe project for couples everywhere to experience making art rolling around on canvas. The key components of the kits are a specially-treated cotton canvas and all natural, non-toxic paint. Covering all bases, the kits also includes a painters drop cloth to protect surfaces from paint splatters, disposable slippers to make a clean walk from the canvas to the shower and even body wash and a body scrubber.
He packaged the kit under the name LOVE IS ART. According to Brown, "Art takes patience, dedication, practice, creativity, open mind, and an open heart...so does love. Love is art."
Simply put, the LOVE IS ART kit includes everything a couple needs to craft a one-of-a-kind abstract painting while being intimate on canvas. Capturing the love and creating memories, a lasting reminder of the love, passion and laughs that were shared. The kit also provides a unique bonding experience for the couples involved, as they work together as a team to craft their own unique masterpiece.
