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.
The superhero WOW boy represents this idea that we are our own superhero. Created at the same time as the WOW elephant,this is a statement to the world outside, to people, to the universe that we are our own superheroes and WOW the sooner we realise that the sooner we will be able to embrace the power of our individual selves.
I created the WOW as a head piece within an image of a boy superhero along the lines of a Batman or Robin type character because they were ordinary people who did extraordinary things and that’s the message which I wanted to convey. This is not my usual type of artwork but it was fun to do.
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.
