Week 15 – Artist Interview- Kelly Yoo and Andrew Louie

image

Growing up I was always a big fan of animation and cartoon shows, such as the shows from CartoonNetwork, and also Dragonball Z, Pokémon, etc. The 2015 BFA Illustration/Animation Senior Show, Drawn Out, was my favorite show from the whole year. I’m glad this got to be the last show I attended for this class. What a good way to end the class. I fell in love with all the Art that was displayed it was so hard to choose a favorite one. So I picked the art from the two artist that to me stood out the most.

Kelly Yoo, like me is also a fan of the Dragonball Z series. Her art stood out to me because it reminded me of some of the cartoons from CartoonNetwork. The characters where never normal human being colors which was what I liked about her art. I also liked how she illustrated a story with no dialogue but with just drawings.

Andrew Louie stood out too me with his dinosaur drawings. As a kid I loved dinosaurs, I had a bunch of toy ones and I also had all the Jurassic park movies. What also caught my attention was his ninja drawings. Who does not love ninjas!!!? I enjoyed this show very much and it also made me sad that I won’t be able to attend this weekly art galleries , but I will continue to look at different art because it has taught me so much about myself in just a short semester.

Week 13 – Artist Interview- Marty Knop

Marty Knop’s gallery has been one of my favorites this semester. I have always been a fan of futuristic computer art works. Looking at his art made my mind wonder various questions. What is it? Where is this from? What does it mean? Are all the different shapes and colors code for something? See, this is the beauty of Marty Knop’s art. It requires you to use your imagination to understand the masterpiece. Some of his art works seemed extremely similar to abstract art because of the blending of different shapes.

Above are my three favorite art pieces of the gallery. What I found so cool about these three was that they all contain the same design; same shapes throughout the whole piece. the only difference was the colors of each of the shapes in the design. It took me a while to figure out that the three pieces all had the same design. Just goes to show that just the smallest change in this type of art creates such a big difference between the pieces. I truly enjoyed Marty’s gallery and hope to see more of his art sometime in the future.
