Still struggling with his name, though creating this character gets more and more exciting! :)
Orwell Analogy by grenia
Orwell Analogy

The book 1984 by George Orwell is one of my most favourite novels I have ever read. The impression it has, a very dark atmosphere and frightening details just makes you really think about all of these aspects of totalitarian world that are actually not so unreal. Even though at the first sight you are tempted to apply the comparison on historical times, I think that what is really striking is its similarity to problems that happen nowadays. Inspired by the concrete quote mentioned in the dystopian novel: “War is piece, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength”, I picked three problematic situations around the world and illustrated them in relation to this saying. On-going war in Ukraine, violence experienced during presidential elections in Zimbabwe and child labour in factories around India, are all very serious problems we should pay attention to. 

Floral Transformation by grenia
Floral Transformation

This piece was inspired by an Art Nouveau exhibition I have visited in Prague. There, the idea of included nature features into art and design was often discussed. 

The series of these three watercolour works captures a development from realistic flower study to wallpaper design. The final piece uses shapes of simplified flower parts I redrew in the middle drawing. Working on this piece of work gave me the idea of how observation and paying attention to our surrounding can be great visual inspiration and lead to the best ideas.

Selfportrait by grenia

This series of nine drawings (13x13 cm each) is supposed to present a very simple form of self introduction in my portfolio. With these self-portraits, I wanted to express my personality – which is, just like the paintings, very varied with many different traits, both positive and negative. Instead of a simple portrait, I decided to connect it with a bit of experimentation and exploration of a new technique.

I considered pop-art very suitable for this purpose. Inspired by works of Andy Warhol, I assumed that I could be well characterised by colourful piece of this kind, plus I found the playful process of simplifying and combining colours interesting and enjoyable at the same time. Finally, make it even more personal, I completed four colourful portraits with written background - a text that simply names things I like.
