Win It: One of a Kind Laughter Inspired Art via The Painted LaughBy Ashley • Jul 15th, 2011 • Category: Art, GIVEAWAY
While her adorabl son was left unsupervised for literal milliseconds & decided to paint his entire body like SUPERMAN (good choice, bro), The Painted Laugh was born, inspired by creator Sonja Landis’ newly found condition. As her son’s laughter grew and -belly-giggles erupted, Landis began to see colors laughter swirling and circling thru the air, filling the room around them… Sonja later found out this was a triggered Synesthestic experience, a neurological condition where one sense (sound) crosses over and initiates a second sense (sight)… it changed the direction of her art and life forever, and ThePaintedLaugh was born. We at TLS have dubbed it Laughter Graffiti , in addition to a piece of art you’ll cherish forever and a day & a fab gift for an anniversary, birthday, graduation or holiday.
(See above for an example of ThePaintedLaugh’s one-of-a-kind interpretation of a child’s laughter. And make sure to check out Sonja’s bio, gallery of work, including hand painted pieces, and testimonials)
