Fresh From The Market

“Fresh From The Market” was inspired by a photograph I took while walking, the streets of Old Havana. After spending a few days in Havana and experiencing how difficult it is to find different produce daily, I had so much appreciation for all the work that goes into preparing a meal, and I wanted to capture that in my art.

I used acrylic paint with a monochrome colour scheme for the portrait and for contrast in the background I used recycled candy wrappers in different colours. The shapes in the background represent that of the leaves of the lettuce.

Blue Eyed Boy

“Blue Eyed Boy” was inspired by a photograph I took while enjoying lunch at a restaurant in Old Havana. There were a few children in the plaza playing and running around after school. Through all the laughter there was a little boy that caught my eye. He seemed to be very deep in thought, and I wanted to capture that in my art.

I used acrylic paint with a monochrome colour scheme for the portrait and for contrast in the background I used a variety of different recycled materials to represent a cloud. The blue and white are the shades for the clouds, and represent the boy with his head in those clouds.
