Oil PaintHow Are You?, 2021

The underlying message of my entry is emotions. The mans face in this painting is clearly showing that he is feeling a strong emotion. The expressive brush strokes I did on his clothes emphasises his feelings. The purpose of this painting overall is to convey how art has one of the biggest clues out there on how to fix stuff because humans are very bad at a range of things that art can help us all with. We still don’t know how to make relationships work, we don’t know how to communicate what we’re feeling to others, we don’t know how to interpret our own emotions and make good choices, we don’t know how to treat others to get the best out of them and a lot of the time we are simply anxious and sad. We all need help with our souls and humans need to wake up and realise what the arts culture can really do for us.
