In response to Basquiat’s work, I’ve started this piece. Incorporating my own messages about my self-concept. I’ve used wax to create textual imagery in some areas, acrylic, photography and text.
The centre is a self-portrait including the camera. I’ve done this to encourage the question about how people are seen by the world. Surrounding this is marks that each hold their own symbolism regarding the Self and how it is not just one simple concept. Also including my own text.
