Gianne Amparo will start her second year on BA (Hons) Illustration at Arts University Bournemouth this September.
The above composition is one of Gianne’s final pieces, in submission for the last unit during her first year of Illustration. She was highly influenced by the colours found from old record covers as early as the 1970’s, which used very bright and exciting colour palettes. Gianne created this as part of a children’s narrative, with her theme centred on anxiety and stage fright.
Within this piece, Gianne was influenced by the Beatles, and wanted to capture her main character hard at work, whilst composing songs for a performance. Her project was based around anxiety and stage fright, and this was one of her final pieces for her children’s narrative.
To create this long children’s mural, Gianne was inspired by a quote by artist Paul Klee, in which he states: A drawing is simply a line going for a walk. She wanted to create a sense of narrative as you look at the mural itself, and tried to capture a loose energy, similar to listening to music. Gianne wanted to experiment on a larger scale than usual, and created this artwork as a result!
