Personal Statement for Arts application

Extracts from this document...


I want to embark upon a life of studying and creating visual experiences. I have initiated this through regular attendance at figure drawing classes which have paid off by being shortlisted to be first at the annual RBA exhibition at the Mall Galleries and being awarded a position as an official scholar of the RBA. Following this, my work will be exhibited in March. The president of the RBA went on to say he had picked my work "because drawing is the pinnacle of every piece of art and design".

Through these endeavours, self critique became inherent in my routine as I am conscious to imbibe good practices. I volunteered for a charity auction in which I donated an illustration and was sold successfully. Touring Iraq, I enriched my understanding of wider concepts both culturally and politically. I saw a sculpture of a chemical shell overflowing with apples, representing the Halabja gas attacks that were said to smell of sweet apples. I want to harness my skills in order to emulate such iconic images throughout this course. I want to attend an institute that nurtures raw, maverick talent that will enable me to be on the forefront of innovation. I will uphold this with a tenacious start in my illustrating career. ...read more.
