Created in 2018, 2018 was a year where I became more confident in creating bigger and bolder art pieces. I went back to my roots namely Litchtenstein and Patrick Caulfield and wanted to create cleaner, simpler art pieces under the Pop Art umbrella. I also started experimenting with the use of words more fully as pieces of stand alone art. The power and beauty of words I use in my personal affirmation and manifestation practise, so this was a great opportunity for me to bring out the positive beauty and message of the word through my art.
Happy was a statement to the world outside, to people, to the universe that I realise that the only person who can make me happy is myself. My happiness doesn’t depend on others but that I am the only person who can control that. After many years of working on myself, and going through a series of spiritual awakenings and reflections, I’ve realised life is driven by the thoughts and feelings that I carry. Provided I recognise that and do not focus on the things that I cannot control, not only will I let go of fear but I will be able to maintain a level of happiness on a consistent basis. As you see I use my art as a means to self-empower myself but also as a tool to track my own self-development and my own narrative.
So fill of colour, and a graphic pop art feel this is my Happy piece. In this piece I experimented with the font type, and brought in some simple design elements.
This piece is a special piece for me because it was drawn in a Moleskin sketch book that some good friends of mine had gifted to me. Every time I drew in the book was a reminder of our friendship so I would always be that extra careful when creating artwork in my Moleskin sketch book.
