About



Carin Dickson has been trading under the title Artescape since 2000. Based in South Africa, she is well established in the South African psytrance scene and has been showcasing her talent across the world over the last 7 years.

Carin started out painting psychedelic backdrops- especially wellknown for her giant 8mx3m UV paintings and has now progressed into creating fully immersive 3D environments combining her painting skills with stretch fabrics, sculptural elements and lighting. From always having a multi dimensional mind and that being evident in her paintings Carin is now using that ability to create spaces to feel as if you are inside a painting rather than looking at it.

Carin under the name Artescape has been decorating all the major psytrance events in South Africa such as Vortex, Origin Festival, Earthdance, Rezonance, Fu-cha, Alien Safari and Groovy Troopers. And more recently her talents have taken her around the world decorating events such as VUUV- Germany, OZORA- Hungary, BOOM- Portugal, GLADE - UK, BLACKMOON & THE EXPERIENCE- Thailand, SONICA- Montenegro and even to countries for smaller events like Mexico, Japan, Nepal, South Korea, Lebanon and Bahrain.

Along with moving onto bigger scale installations and being in high demand came the need for help and over the last 3 years Artescape has trained and built up an awesome team of co-creators to assist in bringing these amazing dancefloors to life. Carin has also introduced an intelligent LED lighting system into the installations , which combined with the artwork creates shifting colour effects and pulsating patterns in and around the dancefloor.

This art speaks a language of its own- a combination of colour mastery, perceptual depth and worldly inspired designs all brought together creating pure eye pleasing awe inspiring visuals and a psychedelic experience all on its own.
