Thrill of the Game

I decided to create a portrait of our volleyball team after we won the Division Three Central title this year. This Pop Art idea emerged from studying the work of Claes Oldenburg, best known for his eye-catching large-scale sculptures and public art which depict everyday objects in a humorous way. In my art, I see something that almost everyone can relate to in some way the thrill of winning. I tried to convey the feeling of being unstoppable through facial expressions, background colors, and design. This process has taught me that making something completely your own requires time, dedication, and willingness to put yourself into your art.
