Week 12- Artist Conversation- Tyler Turett

This week at the art galleries I had the chance to see Tuler Turrets artwork. Tyler is currently a senior here at CSULB and has worked really hard to graduate soon with his Bachelors of Fine Art Degree. I actually loved seeing his art work bc of how each animated character had their own little personality and I honestly thought it was the cutest thing. I liked the small detail like the crease in a characters forehead or a raised eyebrow it really made that character their own. His animated chanracters he created were done either in his computer the majority of the time or hand drawn. Tyler finds himself making these anismared characters on the carton strips on his computer more and it’s a much faster process. He loves to create these animated characters to entertain his audience and viewers by I can also see that he was really passionate about his work and actually has fun with it as well.

Week 11-Activity-Fiber Wall Hanging Art 

This weeks activity is the making a wall hanging art made out of a certain fiber. When I first learned of this I was a little bit hesitant because I believe I’m not really creative or at least I think so. But with the help of my girlfriend my wall hanging decoration ended up being something that I’m pretty proud of. My girlfriend suggested that we go to Target to look around and see if we could find anything at a low price. We explored the dollar section and to our surprise we found some yarn and other little knick knacks that we thought would go good together. 
I used a red ribbon and a black/light brown yarn to tie around this wooden piece we bought that could be used as the hanging piece of the art piece. I picked these colors because they looked pretty festive for the fall season, since thanksgiving and Christmas are coming up it would look nice hanging on a wall for decoration. The process started off as me tieing the yarn into the metal piece of the wooden stick and letting if drape down. Then I decided to braid or somewhat weave the red ribbon around it. After that I continued to string of yarn from shortest to longest.  

 

Week 12- Activity- ePortfolio

So as the semester is coming to an end, we had our last week of activities to be done. This week our activity was to redesign or retouch our ePortfolio website, also known as WordPress. I know I had to make it my own and really express myself and show my best self here as it can be a great too for future jobs or social networking. I decided have my background be a purple setting, with a picture of a road as my header. I want my page to get the audience/ reader to feel serene and calmness when looking over it. It was fun to look at all the tools and explore what I can change to make my blog an expression of who I am as a person and to show that off to people all over the world. Having a WordPress and blogging for the first time opened up my mind to be creative and gave me a purpose and voice to show that I have things to say and I would like others to know what is on my mind.   

 

Week 12-Artist Conversation- Christopher Linquata 

This week I visited the Max L. gator Gallery West and observed the artist Christpher Linquata’s art work. First of all, I’d like to say that Christopher’s paintings were extremely vivid and alive with color, and aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Right when I walked in I knew this was something that I would like. I observed every single painting that he had hung up in the gallery. Christpher said it took about ten months to get every single painting done and that he actually sped the process up, getting all the paintings completely done should’ve took longer. The paintings all had one thing in common, they all took place in one location which is a no trespassing area called “Sunken City”. The reason he was inspired to recreate Sunken City in his pairings is because space led him too it. 

The process in which he created these pairing is he sketched them first into a sketch book, recreating Sunken Scott based on imagination, memory and just making it his own. He never took a picture or actually painted in Sunken City itself. Christpher actually includes himself in the paintings and drew his wife and child in one of them as well. This is Chritophers last year here at CSULB and is majoring in representational painting and drawing. I really liked all the color involved in Christphers drawing and he did Sunken City justice.

Week 12- Classmate Conversation- Alexandra Mendoza 

This week I met Aleandra Medoza who is twenty years old and lives in Long beach. She is a third year at CSULB so she’s pretty young to be considered a junior already at an University. Her major is communication and she is also minoring in Recreational and Leisure Studies. Her favorite color which also excited her is blue. The color blue means freedom and liberty to her personally. I learned that her favorite animal are Dolphins. She is currently employed at the amusement park Knotts Berry Farm with the position of a security. When she’s not working at Knotts she is also an employee at the Honda Center. 

For her free time she doesn’t have too much because while she’s not working at the other two jobs, she is interning in Los Angeles for an event management program. But if she were to have free time, some of the things Alexandra likes to do is hiking, bungee jumping, zip lining, and skydiving. An exciting event that is coming up soon for her is the Marine Ball. She is currently dating a guy who is in the marine and he invited her to go with him as a date. For her future she wants to become an even manager at the shines center as a career.

Week 11- Artist Interview- Kathy Yoon

This week I visited the Maxine Merlino art Gallery and had the chance to see Kathy Yoons art work. Kathy Yoons art gallery was extremely interesting to me and she made it seem relevant to people everywhere. We all experience the ups and downs in life and she made it plain to see visually with her clay figures. Kathy used clay to made her figures that represents each period of her life and what she was going through emotionally, physically, and mentally. Her life experiences are basically her life she explained.

Kathy wanted the clay models emotions to be subtle with their emotions. She wanted to let their emotions be left t the audience to figure out. Some may look sad, but she explained they could just be tired or worn out. She related the guessing of emotions to herself because she said often look at her and thinks she sad or upset when in reality that isn’t the case. As for the color in her artwork, she loved how the color red popped out and really catch the audiences eyes. Kathy does not have a website but has an nstagram @Kathy.C.Yoon 

 

Week 11- Classmate Interview- Rachel Garcia

This week I got to interview Rachel Garcia, she is a third year hospitality major. When she told me her major it excited me because my girlfriend actually a recently graduated hospitality management alumni from Cal State Long Beach. I then asked her how old she, I figured she was 21or older but to my surprise she just turned 20. I asked when she turned 20 and she said September 11th which is also my sixteen year old brothers birthday as well. Rachel told me how in the future she wants to use her hospitality degree to later manage an amusement park. I had never heard of using this degree to manage an amusement park so I thought it was super creative and interesting.

I asked whether she was employed and she told me she has been working at the amusement park Knotts Berry Farm for about four years so far. She started off cleaning but has worked her way up to the position as a supervisor for park services. In Rachels free time she likes to hangout with her boyfriend, he friends, and likes going shopping and out to eat. As for the question of the week Rachel does believe that tattoos are a form f art because it takes crazy skill and practice in order to become one.
