I’ve been experimenting more on shading and colours.
The La La Land piece is that most challenging art work I’ve done in a long time. Low light environments are not my forte. It’s taken from my favourite scene in the movie, the planetarium, which distills the main message of the movie; chasing your dreams.
Went to the National Museum of Singapore exhibit A Changed World: Singapore Art 1950s -1970s the other day for an assignment. I was surprised to actually enjoy it. Especially the political overtures in the art, especially the social realism movement which was popular back then. We don’t talk much about these things anymore, with all the progress we have, always moving forward, forgetting the past.
