Title: Divergent at Dusk
Media: Acrylic
Grade: 10th grade
School: Orinda Academy
Teacher: Steven Yu

This art was an inspiration from a movie I really liked called Cool World. It also ties into my love for vintage aesthetic. I liked designing the dress and playing with the detail on the brick as well as the cement wall. I like the girl because she’s unique looking and seductive. I made her red because her red hot skin can shame the devil. Whenever I look at my painting, I feel like I’ve traveled to a different dimension. It is mixed with nostalgia and a bit of naughtiness. I paint images of this woman cause it’s allowing me to escape from the pandemic.
