This week’s artist was Brian. And he is in his final semester of college. He used to study anthropology but after going to Italy for his study abroad program, he was inspired by western art and culture. He enjoyed expirementing with 2D and 3D art. His painting here is of him in the orange shirt with his Italian friend on the wall who he met during his time abroad! His friend’s name was Antonio. It resembles him painting a wall rather than spraypainting under a brusge. Brian incorporated his life into this painting. As you can see there is Italian, Latin, and Chinese writings also a quote next to his friend Antonio. He said it represented Antonio’s big heart and that it was bigger than Southern Italy! I thought this painting was interesting because it represented a certain time in Brian’s life but he also incorporated other things as well! Really cool!
