Today’s post is from gifted artist Yvonne Osei. She comes to us as a Webster University alumna, with degrees in Art and International Studies. More of her incredible work can be found on her website. Her post for us today comes in the form of an acrylic painting titled Mosaic, and a few words about the painting and her journey as an artist. Enjoy!
Mosaic, as the name suggests, is a painting consisting of fragments of little strokes of color to suggest a crowd. The idea of togetherness as well as individuality are both essential components of the painting. This piece highlights that although as human beings we all have our personal identity and intrinsic uniqueness, we create a resounding statement when we work and stand together as one.
My creativity is nourished constantly by my day-to-day interactions with people and environments. I experience a sense of self-discovery and a strong establishment of self identity when I learn from others; they inform my art making.
Being creative is a lifestyle and an ongoing adventure of learning to see, smell, feel and hear effectively. It is intertwined with the way I view the world.
Creativity through art is a precise, interesting and universal way of communicating ideas. It is the manifestation of our inner creations. As an artist, I am invested in using the fine arts as a way to solve problems in our shared world. I am dedicated to utilizing visual art and design concepts, two globally understood mediums of expression, to achieve global solidarity.
