Orly Faya is a travelling visionary artist, speaker and eternal student/ teacher of healing through creativity. Having spent the majority of her adult life world travelling and living in various corners of the globe, her recent expressions reveal a basic truth via mimetic body painting art: Humanity was born from the Earth and is intrinsically connected to ONE LIVING biosphere.
Her passion for painting combined with a BA in Anthropology and a diploma in graphic artistry makes Orly a rebellious multi-media artist who aspires to create ripples of TRANSFORMATION through vision, creativity and digital expressions.
An internationally recognised award winning body painter, Orly Faya currently specialises in Merging people into the landscapes of the world and exhibits photographic artworks along side the stories of transformation: offering everyday people the opportunity to Merge with the World through Art, Magic and Stillness. This experience is both ceremonial and offers lasting healing, both from cellular level and via its photographic essence.
Orly's intention is to inspire activism through creativity and make measurable differences whilst helping humanity remember the source of our own creation: OUR BEAUTIFUL EARTH
Her environmental collaborations extend to World Wildlife Fund, The Biosphere Foundation, Madhima Gulgan Community Association, BeardsOn Initiative, The Bob Brown Foundation and Planet Ark. Orly Champions the National Tree Day Campaign of 2017 through her work Painting People into the World.
Orly's main project is known as "Emerging Earth People", an initiative that celebrates Indigenous people and their wisdoms through creative vehicles. such as 'Mergings', film and sound. Mixing ancient practice with technology, this project aspires to co-create a sustainable world, via important knowledges. The outcomes are 'process driven' and focus on the Anthroplogical experience of our mutli-faceted cultural collaborations with tribes from all over the globe. in partnership with various film makers who document this journey, Emerging Earth People is an organic inspirational work in progress.
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between their work and their play; their labor and their leisure; their mind and their body; their education and their recreation. They hardly know which is which. They simply pursue their vision of excellence through whatever they are doing, and leave others to determine whether they are working or playing. To themselves, they always appear to be doing both.”
