Michell Art Contest

Michell Art Contest

READ MORE icon_news

Michell, a responsible company immersed in the world of textiles, has a rich 82-year history in this sector. Today its wish is to rediscover and reconnect with its artistic and handcrafting roots which, ultimately, generate the driving force leading to new techniques, technology and fashion.

The Art Contest promoted by Michell has for many years been undertaking the gratifying task of supporting artists from the Coast, Highlands and Jungle, of northern, southern and central Peru. Today, it might also be remembered that in its early days the contest presented and opened its doors to the plastic artist, providing a means of exhibiting his or her works in watercolour and oils, allowing the artist freedom of expression.

During the past five years, the Art Contest has experienced a transition from watercolours to textile art; in fact, the first steps were being taken to find out more about and give greater promotion to the traditional Peruvian activity of hand-weaving. Michell has created an interlude regarding watercolour and oil-painting techniques in order to focus on disseminating and encouraging hand-weaving - a most interesting artistic expression with a fascinating history - and to provide support for its promotion and development. With this modest effort, we also seek to contribute to furthering the knowledge of hand-weaving techniques, enabling them to live on into the coming generations.

Times have now led to a rediscovery of history, motivated by the magical art of textiles. In some cases it may take more than a day's work to weave just one centimetre of delicate fabric - which may record events, experiences, dreams and other subjects which inspire the weaver, who thus transforms them into art.

The objective is to rescue the multiplicity of hand-weaving techniques which have been handed down the generations and to avoid their passing into oblivion; each process is therefore documented. Similarly, support is given to the development of these artists of scarce means but priceless talent.

Furthermore, the most outstanding connoisseurs, scholars, collectors, artists, and art-lovers interested in this technique will be gathered so they can contribute with their ideas to enrich and assist with this lengthy but satisfying undertaking that enables craftsmen-artists to show their works as history which is alive, which changes, which discovers and rediscovers.

This year, the image of the Art Contest is being renovated; the logotype has been created with measured coloured lines to suggest movement and three-dimensionality. Inspired by the yarns used by Andean weavers, this is how we intend to project a new image.

With the same enthusiasm displayed by the Michell family when initiating this rewarding task in 1980, today this work is being redefined, while continuing the labour of social responsibility - on this occasion, with a commitment to the evolution of Peruvian textile art.

A poem written by a Mirasol student

A poem written by a Mirasol student

READ MORE icon_news

Last week one of our Board Directors of Michell & Cia visited the Mirasol School, and with much happiness we received a report about motivation and enthusiasm shown by all children, who just started the new school year last March 2014. 
 
The Mirasol School (www.mirasol.com.pe) is a project that began in 2007,  and thanks to the collaboration and support from customers, friends and Michell team, we managed to build a school for students from 1st through 6th grade . Today we are proud to see the progress achieved in both the educational and personal level. 
 
During the visit,  all children were greeted in each grade, all of them had big smiles and were very thankful. But it was a 4th grade child, who stood up and surprised us with a poem, written by himself and says:
 
The Mirasol Student
 
My mother told me: stand up son!
But I did not obey
One day, she bought me one single notebook,
A pen and an eraser.
 
But on another day the Mirasol school appeared
That same day, together with me, my notebook grew up
And my teacher told me: stand up son!
I was not able to read or to write, but
 
My teacher said: stand up son!
And even though  I did not obey,
My classmates helped me
So I could learn to write and to read
Finally I learnt to read and to write.
 
I went to Puno and people said:
This boy is well educated, he comes from the Mirasol school
And a teacher from Puno said
This boy deserves many awards.
 
One day the Principal gave me
A notebook, a pencil and an eraser
And at the Mirasol school
I started to obtain the best grades
 
And the teachers learnt to love very much  this poet boy;
 
Thanks to my mother
Thanks to my teacher
Thanks to my Principal
And thanks to the support from others,
 I will become a professional.
 
Author:  Carlos Alexander Laura Qquea
4th Grade Mirasol School
 
We share this poem because it has a special meaning for  Charles Alexander , his teachers, and all people making this great project of the Mirasol School possible.This certainly encourages us to support more, continue to grow the school, and hopefully encourage others to generate new initiatives that can help the educational and personal development of the children in the Peruvian Andes.
