1st Final finally finished

Yes. This bad boy is finally complete and it was a nightmare that definitely taught me some lessons for the future. It is the first time I have worked with a dip pen in such scale and it was messy. Frustrating.  And it payed off.

I have previously exercised mark making with copying Albrecht Durers and Bernie Wrightsons work in my sketchbook. It allowed me to feel confident with the techniques and developed my mark making. I know for sure the illustration could be cleaner, as the texture of a scratched and painted over paper looks rough in different light. This is why for the exhibition I will be scanning the finals in and printing them in high resolution to eliminate the texture of paper.

I am an artist that currently studies in Aberystwyth, broadening my knowledge towards Painting and Illustration. I was born in Poland and therefore I like my works to be linked to my heritage, memories and experience where I explore my own imagination in different ways. I still have no idea of what exactly it is that I would like my art to be directed at, but I know that I enjoy producing works that have a true meaning and a link to nature, beauty but also imperfections. This comes from my self experience of always being judged on who I am, where I’m from and what I look like, where all people that I have come across with, no matter what they thought of me they did always appreciate my art. Thus my self worth has been increasing and my confidence of exploring varieties of styles other than just sketching from my imagination was extended. At this moment studying in Aberystwyth have opened me to start planning out my works and listen to my intuition that, so far, has never disappointed me. I want to develop my own style to the point of being able to create anything I could ever imagine.
