Me

Omotayo, Age 17

  • Mixed media
  • Oil and acrylic paint, collage and fabric.
  • A1 portrait

When investigating the topic of context I ventured down the path of identity and culture, in which I tried to portray my own in this piece. In this self portrait I tried to merge aspect of abstractness and realism. I used a common fabric from my culture to reflect part of my background and used a series of differing photographs to represent different emotions that I face, in these I tried to be expressive and thought provoking. All this to represent different parts of 'me' so that the viewer can have a better understanding of the artist.
