A couple of weeks back some young artists got together and decorated the age old University walls with paintings, each taking up a section. The result is a collage of colorful artworks depicting certain socio-political problems : violence against women, global warming, gore in cinema etc.
Fifty artworks in total, all interesting in their own way. Here are some of my favorites. I especially like the second one - a touch of Jackson Pollock!
February 28, 2013. I ventured out into the wilderness to soak up the warmth of the new season; to experience absolute freedom for a moment or two. It was an exhilarating feeling ‒ getting lost. No maps, no roads, no direction; just me and my soul in a holy communion with the savage beauty of the wild, the delicate shades of green.
I walked around for some time, and deep within the heart of this fantastic craziness, discovered some old 19th Century ruins made out of sandstone. I picked out a nice spot to sit on, and wrote in my journal for almost two hours. I embraced it all. I was me, my life was mine, and for that sweet moment I was free.
I have been sketching a lot lately. I first experimented with this style back in 2011. Last month, as I was going through my old sketches, I developed a fresh interest for the style and so I sat down and did a few more. I must admit, it feels tremendously good to be back on my working table. I really needed some graphite back on my fingers.
Here are some old and new sketches from 2011 and 2013.
