Self Initiated Art Work
My self-initiated artwork consists mainly of my own passion for creativity.
My deep interest in the human form and its abstractions, in particular, plays a valuable role in formulating my creative process. Our bodies, in my opinion, play the role of armor, holding onto our soulful internal being, acting as a shell to restrain our spiritual being within a physical form. The body is a threshold for which our internal and external existence takes place and art is a way in which I am able to convey the fragile yet rigid nature of humankind.
By using different media to implement my creativity such as drawing, painting, and photography, I aim to capture different forms of our existence, our surroundings, our being, our essence, and the way in which we are able to visualize and conceptualize the way we form interactions with the world.
Drawing is my biggest artistic passion. For as long as I can remember and have been able to hold a pencil, I have always drawn or sketched. I consider drawing as a means to meditate, a way to relax and contemplate.
I have chosen to display some examples of different drawing styles with which I have experimented in my free time. Having made a collection of these drawings, I realized that I worked on certain styles of drawing for certain periods of time before moving to another style. In this way, I have self-educated myself outside of formal classroom learning.
