Artists and airbrush businesses from all over the world are invited to celebrate the first „Airbrush Artist Day“, the international celebration day for the art of airbrushing. „Be part of this passion called airbrushing!“ is the motto of that celebration day where events, exhibitions, artist meetings as well as special promotions all about the airbrush device shall take place. Artists are invited to present and share their art as well as demonstrate the airbrush technique – either in their own studio, in workshops, in the media or in social networks.
The idea was founded by a group of enthusiatic airbrush artists from South America. The date and the foundation oft he Airbrush Artist Day was generated by US artist Gerald Mendez and his British colleague Andrew Penaluna: In old documents fort he history oft he airbrush technique, they found that the name ‚Air Brush‘ was born and first documented in Rockford, Illinois, USA on October 6, 1883. The entrepreneurs Charles and Liberty Walkup started producing their young product in their renamed business called „Air Brush Manufacturing Company“.
