9 more days left. (Missed a day, so double post today. Somewhere somehow in the world it's still the 23rd! 😂) . Tell Me a Story x Menua Kitai- A Portrait Conversation. 1/06/19 - 2/06/19. See the event page coming up soon on fb- Atelier BrandonRitom for more information on how to join in the portrait painting session. . Thanks to the Centre of Malaysian Indigenous Studies for providing the excellent venue space, and @yayasan_hasanah for providing grant funding necessary to facilitate the commencement of this project, via @youngartentrepreneurs Of @nationalartgallerymy . 20 portraits. 20 stories. Here's a short snippet. . I was trained partly as a figurative and portraiture artist, with some interesting tutors and adventures in a past life. Above all, i will have to thank @hanson9281 for the patient guidance of such an unteachable student (i eventually wised up and listened to advice!) for proving that academic training can transcend racial and sociocultural lines- just because we focus on one very specific craft-based methodology doesn't mean that our works have to be the same old cliched GrecioRoman/westernised, sentimental themes. The skilset learned can be used as a tool of earnest, original observation, but all things take time. . 1st image- a still life arrangement of original Orang Asli/Asal indigenous items. Trying to find a vernacular theme for personal projects. 2nd image- an old double portrait study done during student days. Still kept this around as was first breakthrough piece in understanding what I really wanted to produce in terms of work. . #art #fineart #artistsoninstagram #artwork #arte #kunst #dessin #dibujo #portraitdrawing #portraitartist #portraitart #monochrome #beauty #aesthetic #indigenousart #indigenouspride #representationalart #realism #contemporaryrealism #academicart #malaysia #borneo #sarawak #atelierbrandonritom
