University of Reading Creativity task

1st Year studying BA Art & Design

In 1st year, we were given a task to write a descriptive paragraph of a scene. I wrote a paragraph about an apocalypse and how it was a deserted motorway with crashed cars etc. We then put all of our descriptions in a hat, shook it up and picked out a new one. So I picked up a description about a man with very specific features. We had to paint these descriptions on a canvas we made ourselves. Some featured in the description I picked up were a black man with a large afro that was an outline, yellow on his forehead and red on his lips, then a white and yellow background. He was wearing a smart top with a bomber jacket on. He wasn’t looking directly at you either. So what you see above is my creation of someone else’s description.
