The Beauty Inside

The author

I am a year 12 student in Mount Albert Grammar school. I have loved to draw since I was 5 and have continued to do so. Although I am new to digital art, I am very passionate to learn about new techniques every so often. I want to improve my drawings by using every opportunity I get to draw about unfamiliar, meaningful ideas.

I am a quiet person but I like to express myself through my drawings. As a year 12, I do not get to draw as much as I used to because we have to be worried about exams but every time I have free time, I grab my pencil and let it do its thing.

I chose my subject matters depending on my mood and thoughts about a particular topic. I like to be unique with my drawing and painting techniques even though sometimes the outcome may not satisfy me. I'm always keen to try new things!

I find drawing enjoyable, almost as much as I find rollercoasters fun :)

Project details


I wanted to portray how even after acquiring the 'idealised' beauty through plastic surgery, fake lashes or beautifying lenses, there is nothingness within you (balloon) as you transform (stretch your elastic skin) to full fill your desires. It may strangle you, squeeze the life out of you, but it can't stop your your temptations. The bubbles with sharp objects represent how in a single moment you may disappear completely, not just your inner self. Even though you are 'fixed', you still want to be "more" perfect.

This artwork isn't just about unsatisfying beauty, I also wanted to represent how extreme temptation may lead to a worse fate.
