Overview

The inspiration behind my body of work explores the phenomenon of culture

My cultural identity is made up of Italian + Filipino which inspired me to appropriate Tarot Cards as Tarot Cards originated from Italy

Using the program ‘Procreate’ and my knowledge of human anatomy, the tarots display a painterly style and composition based of ‘diagonals’ and Christian iconography which are typical of Renaissance paintings, thus inspired by my Italian Heritage, whilst the inclusion of bright neon colours, stylistic linework and the choice of digital art are influenced by my Asian culture particularity Japanese manga

Overall the juxtaposition between polar opposite cultures, new and old, reveals the nature of culture as something dynamic and ever-changing. In Australia, I find the abundance of differing cultures fascinating, particularly the ways they blend and play on one another, thus my work reflects the nature I have observed in multiculturalism
