Art portfolio 2011
Born in Connecticut, I like to play any type of games from video games to board games. I like cold weather , playing outside, nature, and animals. My favorite project was the clay gargoyle because I got to see all of the creative gargoyles. I also liked the vanitas still life because of all the sketch work we did.
The artist that inspires me is Salvador Dali. He inspires me because of his imagination and his view of the world. Salvador Dali was born May 11, 1904 . Dali’s older brother also named Salvador died 9 month. His father disapproved of his artistic endeavor's but his mom approved. In 1926 he met up with Pablo Picasso. One of his most famous paintings is the “Persistence of Memory”. He died January 23, 1989.
