Our fourth student artist is Benjamin Mu. As an aspiring fashion designer, Benjamin is new to painting. Yet, he is already showing his artistic nature and skill.
I’m a beginning painter, the above paintings are the first two acrylic portraits I have painted – both completed in the past two months. They are part of a series I am creating of paintings of people who are important in my life accompanied by their pet. I used acrylic because I have never painted before, but I look forward to experimenting with oil on my next work.
My goal in the field is to become a fashion designer. I’m now working on transferring to one of the fashion colleges in San Francisco. As for my influences, I really like the works of Modigliani. I have even copied one of his works in pastel in order to learn from his technique.
