275 a Firenze
275 days in Florence
At the age of six my Mum signed me up for my first art class and ever since then, art has always been my thing. It was not until my mid-20s however, when I realised I wanted to pursue a career in art and it became a serious part of my life. In October 2018, I moved to the Mecca of Art – Florence, to study art full time. This was my dream come true.
The overwhelming amount of new discoveries, daily insights and ‘a-ha!’ moments inspired me to set up a notebook where I would write all the new things that I learned, alongside some quotes and references. This album is a collage of what I have figured out, while showcasing some of the work that was created during my time in Florence.
This book presents my academic work completed in Florence. The majority of pieces are accompanied by preparatory sketches, colour studies and work-in-progress images captured along the way. The images are interspersed with short commentary describing the process, selected aspects of artistic practice, thoughts and reflections.
