The new and second book from the Jaunt documents the creative process of 40 artists traveling all over the world. During these 40 inspiring trips the artists take photo’s, write stories, draw in their sketchbooks and eventually make a design for a limited edition artwork. The book chronicles each stage of this process.
The Jaunt creates opportunities and possibilities for artists. The project allows artists to travel the world and find inspiration – not just during the trip, but lasting inspiration that hopefully permeates their entire artistic practise. The Jaunt’s mission is to catalyse progress and feed fresh insight into the creative process of our artists. The first step in this process is taking the artist out of their comfort zone and allowing them experience completely new surroundings.
The concept is simple: The Jaunt finds an artist and send them on a trip to anywhere in the world that they have never been before. The artist then soaks up all of the local impressions and inspirations at their destination. From freshly brewed local coffee to small boutiques, neoclassical architecture, overcrowded tourist sights or whatever else comes across their path. The artists also document their adventures and impressions in a travel blog that can be followed online, which gives even more insight into the artist’s perspective. Each destination and artist is different, making each trip truly unique.
