So...after getting really stoked on drawing I decided to do my final project with paint. Unfortunately all the school had to work with was acrylic, but I did my best! And I took a lot from the drawings posted above. The use of black, white, and red was really inspired by Maori traditional art, and a lot of the imagery that I use is meant to represent ideas and feelings that I've had in NZ. Only three weeks till I leave, but this place will forever be embedded in my heart. Hope you enjoy. ... and the canvas is about 2.5' by 3', so it's a lot bigger than any of my drawings.
And also here is my artist statement hanging below it:
