Want to bring some WOW to your venue? Winterland specializes in commercial décor projects and one of our specialties is covering everything with lights. We call it Paint with Lights!
When most people think of painting they think of hard work, huge messes, rollers and brushes, and an ultimate headache. When we think of painting, we think of painting with lights. Yes, you can paint with lights! It’s actually a beautiful sight to see. Rochester, Michigan ‘paints’ their downtown in lights every Christmas season!
Hayward, Wisconsin hosts the American Berkenbeiner, a skiing event held annually in February. Cross-country skiers converge on Hayward, and the city thought a ‘painting’ of lights was the perfect backdrop! See more by clicking here!
When we say painting we don’t mean with a paint brush, we mean painting with lights! It may sound like an unusual concept but its actually pretty cool, we take strands of LED lights and lay them down a building side by side so that when they are on it looks like the building has been painted. We can do solid color, we can light up accents or even create accents on a building. Also we can do this in animation to where the lights will dance to music.
To follow with the quote “Art must be an expression of love or it is nothing.” we love what we do. Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures and Christmas and lighting is our nature. Like the great Leonardo da Vinci said “Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.” You will be absolutely amazed by what we can do with our art you could actually call us artistic geniuses. Creativity is intelligence having fun and we have so much fun with what we do and we love what we do, with this being said we believe that just by looking at our work you can see how much fun and love with have with what we do. You may not be a Picasso or Mozart but you don’t have to be. Just create to create. Create to remind yourself you’re still alive. Make stuff to inspire others to make something too. Create to learn a bit more about yourself.
If this is a little too elaborate for you, why not scale this down to a DIY project? Imagine your daughter coming home from school to a bedroom wall ‘painted’ pink (or her favorite color) on her birthday! Or your living room ‘painted’ red and green for Christmas! Simply run guide wire (or heavy duty fishing line) along the ceiling and floor of your chosen wall, choose your light color and string the lights up and down using the guide wire.
We make it look easy but rest assured it is far from easy. Years of trial and error, finding the right vendors and making sure just the right kind of lights are used with the proper music can make all the difference between an average show and an over-the-top experience. Winterland has worked on this for the last 10 years to make sure we are bringing top quality products to the customers. Our highly trained staff can help show you how to turn any building front into an animation work of art.
