Introducing Myself, Alex


Hello, i’m Alex. I'm 13, and i'm and 8th grader at ACS Abu Dhabi. I personally love sculpting, it is my favorite thing in art, as I love being able to make 3D creations, as opposed to 2D paintings, drawings, etc. When it comes to other art though, I enjoy modern art, as well as Picasso. Below is my most recent art work, an unfinished acrylic painting, which is a copy of Lake Harris-Maligne, by Douglas Coupland.

  2. Your acrylic painting is great because it has a wide range of colors. It also seems that you have put in a lot of work into it, and I'm surprised it's still unfinished! Since you like sculpting, I would love to see a sculpture of your own, or any other type of 3-D art! 3-dimensional art seem like it would be good because it really pops out to the person looking at it, and based off this picture I think your 3-d art would be amazing! Let me know if you post a 3-d artwork image, thanks!

  3. Hi Alex, I really like your painting! I find your idea new and original and I really like how you chose colors that contrast each but somehow you made them look nice after all. I am also really into this kind of art. How long do you think it will take for you to finish this painting? Could you let me know when you finish because I am really interested to see your finished work.

    1. Hey Carla, thanks a lot for the encouragement, I think i'll be done with it in a couple of days, as I still need to find the right colors for a couple of areas, but i'd be happy to post it on the blog later on when i'm done. By the way, what did you mean by "I am also really into this kind of art"?

  4. Hey Alex, I think your painting is pretty cool! I am interested in this type of art, and I can see Picaso's art's effect on you ;) Acrylic Painting is pretty cool, and I'm interested to see where this will go!

  5. Hello Alex, I really like your artwork even though it is unfinished. I really like your choice of colour and the way the colours work together. But what really caught my eye was the shapes and the way they look and how they form into one on this piece of paper. I would really like to see the finished result, it would be great if you could post it later on because I really like how you started it off and would love to see it finished and how it all came together.

    I also really like to sculpt and I would love to also see some of your sculptures if you make any.
    Great Job and I hope you finish it soon!

  6. Hey there Alex. I really like your painting even if it is unfinished it is still a very good painting. You are a very good artist because it so far is looking very cool. I think that your should fill in the bottom left bit a dark red like the colour you used in the shape on the other side but a bit lighter. I think it would look really cool. Good luck on the painting and I would really like to see one of your sculptures.

  7. Hi Alex! I can tell that you have spent time painting it. Your painting is really interesting because the colours contrast each other which make is look abstract. I think that the shapes match and it makes the painting look really modern. It is also very creative! Maybe you could try adding more colours, but overall I really LOVE it! Can't wait to see the finished piece!!! PS How did you come up with it? and you have REAL TALENT!!!

    1. Hey Maria, sorry if it was a little confusing for you or anybody else, but the painting isn't my original idea, i'm copying it for art class now :). You can find the actual painting here: https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/asset-viewer/harris-maligne-lake-sampson-matthews-variant/yAFuGXfaFbQoyA?hl=en
      Anyway, sorry about that again.
