Get Colorful with the ROMPUS Art Team


ROMPUS creates large-scale improvisational paintings inspired by surrounding people and sounds, playing with light, shadow, resists, dance, and color to create vibrant, theatrical art. As they paint, their bodies are hidden from the audience but also backlit, so their shadows become part of their work. They pay homage to the natural world with imagery from cellular and galactic structures, animals, plants and life cycles. ROMPUS is also dedicated to creating spontaneous, collaborative spaces all around the festival grounds for everybody to paint. This year the ROMPUS team will take live art at Beardfest to a new level with scrims enveloping the stage, an expanded community painting area, and some surprise tricks they have hidden up their sleeves.
