Reverberation is a series of digital illustrations representing the complex emotions and inner conversations young people of colour are having during the pandemic.
"I explored new techniques using high contrast colours with organic, curvy lines to create visual patterns and form the human silhouette.
These wavy lines symbolise the reverberation of self-expression to the outer world. Inner thoughts and self reflections are illustrated through the eyes inside.
These illustrations show how young people carried themselves differently through the pandemic world while navigating their own identity journey."
Content warning: These artworks contain high contrast visual patterns and stimuli that might cause optical illusion and trigger epilepsy.
"As a person of colour, I often feel misunderstood and undermined in the creative industry but MAV and the Ahead of the Curve project have been nothing but supportive and inspiring.
This projecthas helped me bring my ideas to life and to an audience that care and can relate to my arts. I truly appreciate the opportunity to express my voices and thoughts through these artworks along with other artists.
I hope everyone can find themselves somewhere in these illustrations."
