Ronald is from Downy but now resides in Huntington Beach. He has been drawing since he was young and imagines himself still drawing in the future. He especially likes to draw figures, like the one in this piece. He works at Moon Scoop animation as well as going to school. He was inspired to draw this collection of drawings based upon memories. It took him 4 semesters to finish this collection. I love the abstract quality of his artwork.
I interviewed Brenda who was one of the artists that presented art through wood. She is a major in 3D media, specifically, wood. She works at a store that actually sells furniture made from wood. She sells her own wooded pieces online and hopes to open up her own shop in the future. I like that her art is made form something that is natural, I think it would be cool if she added some carved designs to her pieces.
After 9 years of being a designer she came to CSULB for her masters in art. She always wanted to express herself and finally could once she started getting into her artwork. She likes to make art out of things that are usually not beautiful to other people, like metal. I love this piece by her because it is so crazy! It is very different due to it’s floating in mid air look.
Kaziah is in her first year here as an undeclared major. She thinks she wants to major in communications but is not sure yet. She loves to travel, go to the gym, and disneyland. She is originally from Long Beach and dorms here. She enjoys photography and behind the scenes film. She also likes that in this class she gets to talk to and understand the artists and their work.
Audra is working on her MFA in drawing and painting here at CSULB. She got her bachelor’s degree in New York City at the Pratt Institution. She is 33 and cannot remember a time in her life when she wasn’t an artist. For 10 years she managed a miral company and then decided to come to California on an offer to draw backgrounds for some commercials and shows such as Tosh.0. These gallery of hers is her thesis expedition to graduate. At first it represented the wiring of technology and how intricate it is. But now, she feels it represents our own nervous systems that are also complex. First, she glazed the main bright colors onto the canvas and then glossed it and lastly used oil pastels. She teaches a color theory class here and dreams of teaching after she receives her master’s degree. I enjoy this art because I love abstract. I like how she used one main color in each piece to make the piece pop out.
Jesse is a senior getting his BFA in sculpture. His artwork included some chess like pieces using plastic and acrylic board. His work includes Christian background, which I can relate to. He explained how God uses kings as pawns and how He has made all of us in different shapes and sizes like chess pieces. Jesse lives in the Alhambra and commutes everyday.
