Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Fascinated with fashion and how we use clothes to express our identity, this piece shows one of my favorite sweaters. The painting was taken from a sketchbook. It started as a rough study back when the sweater was brand new around 2016. Both the painting and the sweater were finished on 2021.
