Paints such as oils, acrylics, watercolour and gouache typically used on a large-scale work. Also, active user of fine liners, grey-lead and coloured pencils.
Passionate about film and television, animal care and ethical treatment of animals. The psychology of the mind, human condition and emotion (which relates to the theme of my art). Controversy in art and ‘shock factor’.
My art started to really develop in 2014 and I was attempting to create hyper-realistic portraits to the best of my abilities. Since then, I’ve tried to steer away from realism and focus on the emotion and meaning behind my works. This was due to inspiration from expressionist artist Edvard Munch. I aim to create large-scale pieces that fully captures my own personal thoughts and experiences with the intention to shock and possibly disturb the viewing audience.
I personally feel Latrobe Valley doesn’t have a big enough art scene. There’s still opportunities for emerging artists of course, but I found since living in Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada, of which has a large community of artists, that there needs to be more around. What I hope to get out of Alt Art is a space I can create art and talk to like-minded people. I see the organisation growing to cater a larger audience and having a more significant impact on artists around Latrobe Valley.
