Charlotte Krieger and LYZZA are the two selected artists for this year’s Foam x ADE Playground project. The two are presenting their project under the name She Only Paints with Bold Colours. The project is the result of blending the practices of these two confident young artists who do not shy away from expressing the good and the bad, the ugly and beauty, the hard and the soft. To walk this line one has to paint with bold colours, to be seen, heard and felt.
