Pen and water colour on canvas
My art piece is centred around ‘fantasy maps’. I got my inspiration from friends, books, videos and things that caught my eye in the environment. For example, I saw mushrooms growing in a secluded spot in the local park. This artwork was created with pen and paint. Originally the plan was to burn the canvas; however, I chose to use paint to create the illusion of a faded map instead. The purpose of my work was to engage the viewer not to look at all the individual details but to see the whole and create their own story from its unique characteristics.
