Walking On Air And Creating Without Boundaries


 By Kadesh Carter

Art Belongs To The Artist And Is Meant To Be Shared With The World… To Be Expressed Without Any Second Thoughts.

I was told to do something daring by two people this week. Therefore, I decided to walk on air. One person, whom I have known for ten years, and the other who I haven’t known a year, but his understanding of me feels like a lifetime. When it comes to the creative process, the impossible has to be the least important thought. No time for thinking about what could possibly hold you back from being your most creative self. When we take a selfie, or if you have ever taken one, that person is you. You have created the pose, posture, and facial emotion to express to the world, “Here I am.” Rather that image is signifying boldness, strength, or self love – it’s you. Creating without boundaries has been a great challenge that I have recognized that I can win. It is the total need to overcome any self proclaimed fears. Art belongs to the artist and is meant to be shared with the world. It is to be expressed without any second thoughts.

Owning and valuing the imagined creative thought is one small step for the artist, and an exponential leap for mankind. When looking at a wall, and considering if there will be a permanent installation, or a removable one, that thought must be acted upon. Immediately. Sanding, or painting must begin. Business growth as both an artist, and creative director was birthed from proceeding with the process. Now, everything takes steps to complete, but if something isn’t started, how will it ever be finished? Think of it this way; what if you could have yellow, and purple bedroom colors painted? You can. Your local home improvement store, paint shop, or interior decorator are great resources to make your living room, kitchen or bedroom color scheme dreams come true.

Completing The  Action Because You Believe In The Outcome

Within all of us there is something that we do best. What we are good at tends to reflect on our job, or in personal hobbies. I am good at looking at a spaces and visualizing what will bring it alive. This grew from thought of, “Hmmm, I wonder what a large black painting would look like on that wall.” To, the action of creating the art work and installing it in a space curated by Oasis Art Design. See the difference? One is talking about my actions to myself, and the other is going about completing my actions because I believed in the outcome.

Take Control Of Contrasting Conflictions

Taking a leap of faith, in curiosity, is using what you know and demonstrating that visually which builds confidence. It changes how you maneuver in your life course. “You do or you don’t. You will or you won’t.” A saying that can be applied to the art world and feed the souls of the many paintbrush holders out there staring at a blank canvas. Are you one? You don’t have to be. Go ahead, walk a little faster, skip, jump and take control of the contrasting conflictions that are keeping the colors from flowing freely.

Ok, so I didn’t actually walk on air but it has been a personal and business choice to explore the depths of creative directing to its fullest. And in doing so it has been recognized in my work that I have chosen to be my best self artistically. Despite any social, economic, or regional reasons that have declared art as not being an importance. Art and design is what puts rooms on a blueprint, tile patterns on walls, gallery appearances together, and makes the feng shui in your home the sweetest place you’d like to be.

Red Rouge: Epoxy Flooring


By Kadesh Carter

Protect your residential, or commercial garage floor from a boring cement look.

Coating a cement floor is a tough job, but a great upgrade for any location looking for an all around finished touch. A colored, shiny, epoxy floor coat is premier floor varnishing. The durability of a floor is the first thing homeowners, and contractors think of when deciding to cover a floor with linoleum, wood, tile, or paint. How long will this job last? Oasis Art Design loves loyal customers, and satisfaction is a goal that we must meet with each job so that you’ll return. Protect your residential, or commercial garage floor from a boring cement look. Both in style, and in professionalism, the material properties that make epoxy floor coating will have you wishing that you remodeled even sooner.

For a large 1300 square foot job we inspected, and then prepared the floor thoroughly before giving the space a look of royalty in red. The customer specifically selected this color due to cultural beliefs of red meaning happiness, and good luck. What a great combination, one would think. Whatever your favorite color is, or the design theme desired, it is achievable. Make it personal when it comes to having your remodel completed. Your vision is our vision.
