Passions and obsessions evaluation Who were the reference artist and how did the influence your idea? The first artist I looked at was Leonid Afremov, I found him while searching the Internet for inspiring artist and I came across a piece of art called Beautiful Cellist. When I first saw it I loved it because of its bright I colors and because I used to play cello and I really like the instrument. I also liked the fact he used oil paint because of its thick texture, also the bright colours reminded me of pop music so I tried to make my own study of Leonid Afremov using oil paint however it took forever to dry so it didn't come out to well. After looking at Afremov I decided to base my project on music so I started looking at ears and exploring how I could use them in my final piece, also using the shape of the ear and turning it into a guitar/cello. ...read more.


How did you decide on your final outcome? I decided on Music, The first reason was because music is an obsession; I listen to it whenever I have a chance and I always have my ipod with me. I can also say it's a passion to me since I love it and it can sometimes help me with my emotions. I got the idea of doing music because I came across Leonid Afremov and one of his paintings was a girl playing a cello and I liked the idea of doing music so from then on I went along with the idea. Also alfremov work gave me the idea of pop music from the bright colours. And I decided to draw ears because without ears you wouldn't be able to listen to music, also ears are a weird shape and they was fun to draw. However doing just ears for my final piece was abet boring so I used the shape of the ear and added the features of a guitar, but I didn't want to make the fact I was doing music to obvious. ...read more.


I used similar colours to Andy Warhol however even though I used his idea I made it my own my using 'guitar ears'. How successful do you think the piece is? What did you do well and what you have done better? I think my final piece was quite successful since I used a reference artist and the idea was quite unique. I also used a variety of materials (paint, felt tips, glitter) however if I did redo the project id give myself abit more time because as I was coming to the end I got a little nervous and stressed that I wasn't going to finish on time however I did. I think I mixed the colours well and I used the opposite colours on the colour wheel (primary colours). I would try to make my ears a bit brighter and stand out abit more if I knew how but I ended up over doing them with paint and having to do redo them. Over all I think my final piece was quite successful but not 100% successful as I explained. ...read more.
