I have designed two moodboards on two eras which are 1960’s and 1940’s, I have chosen to look at another era which is 1980’s because I found this era was very interesting too. I am happy with my two mood boards they show us exactly what was going on in them years. It shows us some of the history, political things going on. In the 1940’s mood board it shows us the very first bikini, ball point pen and computer to now. In the 1960’s mood board it shows us sesame street, the newspaper article telling us Marilyn Monroe had died and first star trek showing.
I'm afraid that if you look at a thing long enough, it loses all of its meaning. Andy Warhol This quote is from Andy Warhol, I think his painting work doesnâ€™t really have a meaning as for his advertisement work and his comerical work.
Differences and similarities between Andy Warhol's work and Roy Lichtenstein's work. Andy Warhol was a printmaker he created screen print artworks on paper in mass production. His work focused on consumerism and popular culture, like Coca Cola, Campbell's Soup, or Brillo this was good for advertisement. Lichtenstein's work was primarily on canvas. He worked with paints. He's famous for his benday dots- which were mainly on the faces of some of the woman in his art work. No other pop artist used these dots. His work was appropriated from comic strips. He would take a comic strip, cut out a box, and recreate it with paint. Often, he would change little things like hair colour, etc. Some of his work focuses on foods like meat, etc. Both are Pop Artists because they created artwork in the 50s and 60s. Both are American artists
Keith Allen Haring (May 4, 1958 â€“ February 16, 1990) was an artist and social activist whose work responded to the New York City street culture of the 1980s by expressing concepts of birth, death and war. Haring's imagery has become a widely recognized visual language of the 20th century. The best reason to paint is that there is
no reason to paint... Keith Haring. I like this quote from Keith Haring as it expresses his work really well. It tells us that his work doesnâ€™t have a meaning he just paints what he wants without thinking I feel that Keith Haring's work is very creative and bold, because it Is very over loaded with different shapes and sizes all fitting within one another with a lot of colour so it is not boring.
Here I have designed a 1960s inspired mood-board I have based it on all advertisements that were created in those years. Food advertisements were really popular as you can see there were more food adverts than normal day to day adverts.
Here is a 1940s mood board inspired by advertisements in that year, the most popular advertisements was beauty adverts as this year is the year woman began to become very feminine and like there body's and loved to do makeup that why it was so popular.
Here are some test shots of my photo shoot these picture relate to 1960s and twiggy really inspired me with these picture as she was a big model in this year. We changed the angles of the pictures and lights.
Here is also 1960s photo shots we tried to find out which was the best angle for the picture to show the full effect of the face paint, Also we didn't want any emotion on the face to show no mood.
I have created a muse board, It is based on a french actress/singer called Francoise Hardy. She fits in well with all my work as she was very big and popular in the 60â€™s and she went well with my Final image.
I feel that my working sketch goes well with my two eras and I am glad I done a very simple style instead of a very difficult design.
As a class we visited a fashion museum called Platt Hall, It is in Manchester with garments aged from 16th century to the 20th century we went round and drew each part of a garment and took pictures.
The pictures above influenced me with my work because they are bold colours, I used poses in my photo shoot and painting teqniques also the soap and glory and benefit reminds me if my two eras, 1960â€™s/40â€™s
