test flickr gallery December 12, 2014 By teens.artsconnection.org Leave a Comment UntitledStephan B. digital art This artwork that I created with Adobe Illustrator was inspired by the work of Emilio Sanchez. He used the bright colors of buildings and his memories of Cuba in his artwork. I used his simplified style of creating shapes on a photo that my art teacher took of buildings in the Bronx. To make it pop more I used dark colors next to bright areas and I tried to make it look realistic.General out look inhabitedMelisa B. charcoal In order to portray the theme "Global Perspectives in the City," I thought what better way to represent the world than another ordinary person, being that each person makes up our society. I wanted to get the feel of an actual city, yet keep it blurry in order to let you viewers know that it is a reflection upon this man's eye. The reflection acting as the aspect this man has on a city. I cannot speak for this person nor can I speak for others. Everyone has their own individual detailed perspectives and opinions on everything. That being said Global perspective isn't something that can be represented here, it is but a statement wanting to achieve something one man simply can not.All the PeopleSally C. photography This photo was taken at Coney Island from the water. I am portraying my perspective, which can be comparable to anybody else who is in the image--we may look different in appearance, we may be with different people, but we are all on a crowded beach trying to enjoy this summer day.ReligionCarolyn C. digital photography This photo represents the world of religion in our city. The Buddha, one of the saints worship here.MorningXena G. collograph (sand, tissue paper, cardboard, shells, plastic beads on chipboard /(print) ink on paper While creating this piece I was inspired by a Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda. I transformed his imagery from his poem into art. For example, in the poem he explains the way her body looks. I used sand and cardboard to make her hair flowing in the wind. Then I used blue and yellow tissue paper to create her dress she was wearing in the poem. Also I really like Manga and anime so this also inspired the style of the piece. I discovered from reading Pablo Neruda's poem that passion can be expressed in all languages.Time is UniversalJennifer H. acrylic paint I chose a clock tower because time is universal; meaning everyone around the world can tell time, as well as time continues to tick. I chose to have the 12 numbers of the clock to be in twelve different languages to exemplify my title. As for the background, I incorporated a skyline because it represents the city aspect of the theme. Number 1 is Russian, #2 is Malay, #3 is Yiddish, #4 is Greek, #5 is Hebrew, #6 is Japanese, #7 is Georgian, #8 is Hindu, #9 is Cherokee, #10 is Lao, #11 is Korean and #12 is English.New York City in MotionDanyal J. acrylic paint My artwork displays New York City at night. It shows all the bright lights in the city. New York City is very active, people are out and about. Eating at cafes and enjoying the night scene. New York City is a city that never sleeps.We the PeopleMary L. acrylic paint on canvas When creating this piece "We the People" I was thinking about the wars, poverty, and violence going on in 3rd world countries, and how there is a struggle in everyday lives. The girl in the painting represents the youth, the future, and the new generations growing up around violence. I wanted to express the rights of the people through this piece. I used acrylic paints mostly mixed browns and reds. I painted this mural at PARSONS The New School of Design Pre-College Program, painting class.ReleaseFarhat S. mixed media I wanted to show the passion with which I live each day in the city. This city gives one a feeling of ecstasy, constantly. This is especially true for a new immigrant like me.Brooklyn in its Own WayAnton S. photography Brooklyn is the most fun and enjoyable borough in NYC. It has huge parks and great areas which have delicious restaurants and interesting museums. I like it and enjoy it and I want to show others how enjoyable it is.Dream ConnectionLobsang T. watercolor Being an artist, I am able to express my ideas, feelings, and imagination to the world. It gives me an opportunity to improve my skills day by day. My art teacher urges me as I am doing artwork, which motivates me to do more. While working on this piece, in the water color medium my teacher helped me to establish a harmonious flow, which reinforces its appearance. The back of the envelope represents my present life in 2011 as a refugee student studying at Newtown High School, Elmhurst, New York, while the front side represents my future after a decade, when I will be returned back to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet. On December 26th, 2021 Mr. Feigelis, my art teacher will mail me my "Time Capsule" envelope containing a letter to myself, which is about my dreams that I want to achieve in the future and some memorable photos of my childhood age with my mother.UntitledUsmonbek Z. collage My picture is about Chinese culture.
