In the name of Art (part 1 of 6)
One of my last classes I had to take to graduate was a 2D design class. In other words, 2D design is the art of abstract things, like cubism. The best way to describe this class’s concept was to make everything warped and unnatural. I told a confused classmate to think of it like drawing a picture, drinking Robitussin, and then retracing it all from memory. Who’s to say it looks like crap because it’s in the name of art. This class mostly helped us grasp a better understanding of Pablo Picasso’s work.
This was my first project for the class. I had to paint a design that was asymmetrical and didn’t repeat itself anywhere. The color scheme had to be complimentary colors that look good together. To add a quirky twist to it, when I completed the piece I turned it upside-down. What do you think?
