The SPiN Artist Residency at Pikes Ibiza has been formulated to encourage creative, experimental thinking and personal growth of emerging and established visual artists. Each artists individualism will shine among a community of artistic fellows while creating art through an autonomous and unrestricted working atmosphere. Risk taking and mutual dialogue with other international artists is one of the objectives of the residency and for artists to engage in progressive ideas, without the pressures from normal daily life. Each resident at The SPiN Artist Residency is to use the benefit of this time and environment to vigorously pursue creative exploration through a conscientious studio practice
*There is only space for 25 international artists available for this residency*
*Two (2) spaces will be awarded free to a couple of lucky emerging artists.*

Three examples from an idea born from the great reign of Queen Elizabeth II and how her portrait graces lands across the world on coins from the Royal Mint. No other human in history has had their likeness displayed on more coins than her. All are hand painted by me on 12 inch (30 cm) circles of wood. #QueensMintSeries

A new addition to the eclectic, racy and fun collection of the True Rocks Jewelry line is on the horizon. Diver UP will be the next piece and weighing about 10 grams of pure silver, it should be a knockout. The sample should arrive in Ibiza any day now so photographs are forthcoming. I took the Original image of Diver UP in 2005. To see the complete line of True Rocks click link: http://www.truerocks.com

RIP Hugh Hefner the founder of Playboy Magazine and a huge force for Womens Empowerment and was at the lead of the Sexual Revolution. A true bon vivant. I was fortunate to be invited to the Playboy Mansion on several occasions and snapped this portrait of him. ©Victor Spinelli Archive
