An interactive look at todays artist and the studio pieces that they inspire. Follow an Art School student as she explores different mediums

Where do we come from and where do we land?
Wangechi Mutu’s work speaks to me in a couple of different ways. She is bold, and I appreciate that.  I enjoy her stance on the human figure as a woman. And I think her choice of materials is very interesting.
I chose to portray her style by using one of her pieces as a direct inspiration;
'Misguided Little Unforgivable Hierarchies.'
I used images from magazines to show the pressure that I personally feel from the media.  To be blonde, to be thin, to be happy.  And sometimes, this just isn’t the case- so I wanted to show this through the image.
I used watercolor and magazine cut-outs.
