Behind ChiCura


CHICURA OUR NAME

The name ChiCura is composed of two words which are very important in relation to the thoughts and dreams behind the brand. Chi comes from the Chinese qi and means life energy. Cura is the Latin word for care. In other words, caring for life!

OUR MISSION

It is ChiCura's mission to come up with a variety of designs that you can acquire with a clear conscience. ONLY animal-friendly products that are produced under humane conditions and with deep respect for our earth. We would like to think a bit different from the traditional Brand. In the sense that we will be involved in various charity projects on an ongoing basis and develop art/products around each project that can be sold with a good profit to the areas we are working in. Likewise, our mission is to donate up to 10% of our annual profits to charity. All the Art Photography is done by ourselves and is printed inhouse. Every design is thought out to have a symbolic meaning behind it, and therefore a small text is added when you receive your poster.

CHICURA FRAMES 2 IN 1 MAGNETIC FRAMES - 2 in 1 Magnetic Frames The magnetic frames give a simple and fine expression. Reflections are avoided as will normally occur in a glass frame. In this way, the artwork is seen as intended by the artist. The frames are very easy to mount and you can quickly and easily change your poster in the magnetic frames if you later on wish to go for a new look.

H.C. Andersen Reinterpretation of the iconic paper cUTS made by the beloved fairy tale AUTHoR H.C. Andersen. Hidden messages challenge us and can shape us as human beings over time. More than 100 years ago, H.C. Andersen sat and made his adventurous paper cuts, and with this feeling Charlotte Lavian designed this poster collection of H.C. Andersen’s famous paper cuts. The posters are based on trend colors and include small unique quotes that originate from H.C. Andersen’s own collections. About H.C. Andersen: Hans Christian Andersen, born 1805 in Denmark, is one of the immortals of world literature. The fairy tales he wrote, such as “The Ugly Duckling” and “The Princess and the Pea”, remain classics of the genre and are like no others written before or since. As today, in Hans Christian Andersen’s day opinions were also divided about the tall, gangly person from the province. He might not have fitted in exactly, but he also insisted on sticking out. Hans Christian Andersen was something special: full of contradictions, nuances and facets. Throughout his life, the poet devoted his enormous talent to a crucial task: understanding oneself and what it means to be human. His life and art make the world a richer, deeper and more wonderful place. In order to amuse his friends and their children, Hans Christian Andersen made his paper cuts. The paper cuts were not only meant to be a pleasure for the eye but also a challenge for the mind. Often there was a hidden meaning in them - in the same way that we know it from the fairy tales: on the surface it could amuse, in depth it would amaze. Some of the paper cuts are purely picture puzzles or rebuses, others are icons combined to represent a linguistic symbol. The double meaning hidden in the paper cuts demonstrates the fairy tale author’s way of thinking. It reveals an utmost modern way of thinking, using the word not as a media to create meaning but as a material of meaning itself.

Original H.C. Andersen quotes on the posters:

“GRATITUDE IS THE MEMORY OF THE HEART”

“to have an eye for flowers suggests that one has a good mind” “The one who loves music must also have an open and good heart” “I’m sorry for writing a lot, i do not have the time to write a little”

“where words fail, music speaks” “in nature one is always in the heart of the Divine”

“It’s all right to be born in a duck yard, if only you are hatched from a swan’s egg”

“our time is the time of adventure”

“My life is a beautiful adventure, so rich and blissful” “The whole world is a series of miracles, we are just so used to them, that we call them ordinary things”

“But shouldn’t all of us on earth give the best we have to others and offer whatever is in our power”

“Through life, an invisible thread runs” “Life is the most wonderful adventure”

“the lamp of poetry is and will always be the human heart” 25

#dogoodprojects Why not, if it’s possible and it always is, one way or another... A big wish we had when we first started ChiCura was to be involved in different projects along our way. Projects where we can contribute with our creative ideas, our time and by donating. In 2019 we started a cooperation with Land Of Hope. It was a cooperation based on the creativity of the children at Land og Hope. They made beautiful paintings which can be aquired as either posters or art cards. So far the childrens art has raised DKK 75.000,- (€ 10.000,-). And this is only the beginning. Imagine how proud these children are when they see and hear about that their own art are hung in many homes around the world. Land Of Hope runs the biggest children center in West Africa named “Land of Hope” where 72 homeless and tortured “witch children” have been rescued, given a secure and loving home and an education. Donations to Land Of Hope will be used to safeguard the running of Land of Hope, which includes school and education fees, food, nutritional and medical care, hospital treatment of tortured children, clothing, staff salary, operation and maintenance of Land of Hope and advocacy programs.

“We love to work with our children and help them achieve their dreams. The transformation of our children is very powerful. From the day we rescue a child, to the day that same child becomes top of the class is truly an amazing journey to witness. We believe that every child deserves the best start in life. In all the vices of the world children are the most vulnerable. It´s our responsibility to protect, love and care for our children. To give them a qualitative education. Education provides the children with knowledge about the world. It paves the way for a good career. It helps build character. It leads to enlightenment. It lays the foundation of a stronger nation.” - Land Of Hope -

BEHIND CHICURA The story leading up to ChiCura’s birth... The founders behind ChiCura, Charlotte Harbo Lavian and Daniel Lunding Lavian, got together in March 2010, in a work-way that is. Besides being working partners, they have, in their private lives, also been a couple since 2007. Thoughts about an independent life were a high priority for both of them, so they quickly agreed to try it out. Daniel and Charlotte each come from two very different backgrounds, which means that together they stand strong. Daniel has the economic and strategic business background. After his studies, he has played a big role in several growing companies and is good at juggling many tasks at the same time. Charlotte is from the more creative, visual branch and has worked in different large photography studios. In 2010, she started as a self-employed photographer and retoucher. Later in 2014, Daniel became part of that business, which they still run to this day, After having worked with different brands for many years, the dream grew. Suddenly, the photography background became the springboard for a new brand that Daniel and Charlotte began to work on at the same time. It absolutely had to have something to do with photography, design, and creativity since they had already created the perfect foundation for it. In February 2015, ChiCura was born...

“To have made this opportunity for ourselves is the greatest thing ever. To be able to construct our lives just the way we want, is a blessing. Our dream has become a reality. Work is no longer work and we are together with the people we love every day. It makes us balanced and clear about our future and it becomes easier to ask ourselves how can we do this even better, while we of course have that deep gratitude of what is.”
