Studio Visit

This is my favorite workshop this term, “Pick Me Up” a contemporary graphic art fair. It was held in Somerset House, the fair brought many studios work to show. Honestly, I choose this studio visit because I know that there would be Rob Ryan studio included. Lucky me, he was there! the real Rob Ryan! I was so glad to met him, he is my favorite artist. He worked there with other three girls, help him cut his work and as if he moved his studio there, the room was amazing. There were screen print, table works and all his inspirations on the wall. I stood there and walk around many times (and can’t stop smiling) Not only his studio that made me smile, there were lot of talent designers and artists, their works inspired me so much. Some made from very plain graphic but turned out very great. I saw many ideas, many techniques and especially, I got many artist names that I never heard before and search more about their works online when I got back home.

Pattern London

My last workshop this term is Pattern London. We taught how to make pattern but everybody did their own style anyway. At first, I planned to made a hand-draw one, but there was no equipment so I changed to made them on screen. My idea was based to the original one as hand-draw, so I draw some and find illustrations that fit was I thought and mix them together. In only one hour I had, I made London topping cupcakes, even it’s not really the final one but I quite like it.

Stencil and Icon and symbol

I have known the stencil technique before but not with the sponge. When I stenciled I always use a spray colour but this time when I use sponge, the out come is amazing. It can see the disheveled of colour when you roll the sponge each time which I quite like that.

In the Icons  and symbols class, I was told to create signage for the area in London I choose. My group choose Covent Garden area which has a way to China town also. We got many ideas for create symbolic of places around there, like a symbol of a man a hat and money in their eyes, refer to a street show there which you have to pay for watching them, or a upside down duck for China town. After many ideas we did, we decided to mix the symbols and the signags together, related to what we feel that ares is. All the mood, feeling, sounds, smells and people there are like, we agree as a fun feeling like a festival is explain that area best. Not only thinking about the shape of places and directions there, but I have learnt to think about the atmosphere and the feeling of that area to.

Likay in Thaiyo

The Thaiyo exhibition took place in Bangkok Art and Culture Center, from Thai artists who got influenced or inspiration from Japanese arts. This amazing craft works was made by Thai artist who I took a biding course with her last year, Likay Bindery. She collected memorable pieces of paper from over 2,000 books she made and remade them as a new pieces of 3D collage-like craft books. That’s a good way to keep your good memories, isn’t it?
