As an art history major who recently had to go through article after article on colonialism as exhibition, and being a “non-white” person who has yet to meet a non-Caucasian person in my field of study, this gives me so many feels.
Day 15 - What is your favourite piece of art from your country and another country? Try and compare them.
As an art history major and being friends with countless artists, it’s impossible to pick one favorite piece from any country.I’ll go with a couple of my favorite artists.
US - Felicia Olin - her artwork is amazing. I especially love her portraiture. She also happens to be acquainted with a lot of my friends and family.
Czech Republic - Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939) His most popular artwork was made in France, but he worked across Europe and North America. My favorite works of his are his portrait posters, (which also feature women).
Another project from work. The leaves are from a stamp I made from carving a potato, and the trunk was made using a carrot Mary carved. #fall #crafting #art #work #ymca
