I really liked this group of artist or should I say couple, considering it consist of only two artists. They met at college together because they were both architecture majors who had a craving for moving more into the art scene. So after a contest came to the town they were residing in they both took off from there and now create amazing pieces using architecture and art combined. I find their work very inspiring to me and I would definetly like to try this when I am older.
After seeing all of her incredibly creative and innovative types of fonts I was very moved. Before I had seen her works I always picture font as something thats just there and not really a form of art. But after seeing the amazing stuff that she had envision and created just made think it all over. I know think of typography as something totally different than I had before. Even the fact that she landed all these jobs/internships that she loved and were with major companies really got me thinking. I guess all you need to go far in life is to do something you love with hard work and dedication.
For this project I had to create an image using photos that I have taken from around the city and then apply 5 different layers to the image. Then I had to some how void the copyright laws by adding an image to it. Before you know it, the final image....
For this weeks lecture we had a speaker named Benjamin Volta. He went to highschool around here, to be exact he went to Abington Highschool. Which was werid when I heard that name metioned because I just met a couple kids this year who went to that school. Before this I had no idea that it even existed. But getting back on track. I really did like the work he did. Although it looks completely abstract it contains many figurative elements. This gives his piece a really eye catching effect to the viewer. In my opinion he was one of the best artist to give a speech a tyler. He had a really up beat and positive personality which kept you awake throughout the whole lecture. In the future I really want to create a piece like one of his and I will definelty search through his work in my free time.
This time the lecture was about a man we will call Mr. Thompson.....His work was very unique from what ive seen so far from the other lectures. He has a very specialized style which he uses and recreates in all of his works. The fact the he his a carpenter definetly plays a large role in the style of how his pieces come out. They all seem to be heavily formulated and contain a lot of defined lines. I really like the fact that he lives up the name of a starving artist by living in a basement of a bakery...or maybe not starving if he gets the leftover food...either way his work is extremely interesting and I hope to see some of his stuff in a museum one day.
This was a small project we had to do in Computers after learning the basics about the photoshop. We had t o use a picture and change it in our way that made it our own. For my project, I used a photograph of the miners that were trapped in the mine in Chile. Here is the celebration picture.
