Hello, my name is Simr, I’m 13 years old and I go the American Community School. I like video games, cars, basketball, and drawing. I have one younger brother. I live in Abu Dhabi but I was born in Indonesia. Abu Dhabi is a country with many art exhibits that are still under construction such as a Louvre Abu Dhabi, Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, and more. I always loved art, especially drawing comics, which I do at least every week. Currently I’m working on a masterpiece copy using acrylic paint for my art class. The artwork I chose to copy is called “Mt. Fuji” by Yokoyama Taikan (my copy is below). It’s a difficult artwork to copy, but I challenged myself and managed to do it. We all chose our artwork from Google Art Project, a great site for finding any kind of artwork. I am quite proud of my work, despite the multiple mistakes that I have made, like how the detail on the mountain is in two different colors and that the sun doesn’t look round and smooth. I don’t really have emotions or feelings that inspire my art, I just get random ideas at random moments.
That’s enough about me, I want to learn about you. Do you have any art exhibits close to where you live? Do you like art? If so, what types of art? How do you find inspiration? I can’t wait to speak with you. In the meantime, see you in the next blog post.
