This is a collage-ish thing for a Spanish project I did earlier this year, but I just took it home today. My project was to research artists from Spain and create a collage on a 2 ft x 2 ft ceiling tile that represents their styles.
So this is pretty much the painting The Persistence of Memory
by Salvador Dalí in the background, but with the clock on the coat thing removed. The cello represents Pablo Casals. The faces in the corner are from Hable Con Ella, a Spanish movie directed by Pedro Almodóvar. The building atop the cliff (kind of hard to see) represents La Sagrada Familia
, a church built by Antoni Gaudí.
This is actually the first painting I've ever painted (elementary art class crap doesn't count) and I'm pretty happy with the result
But omg painting on a ceiling tile is the hardest thing ever. Because of the texture of the ceiling tile, if you simply make a brush stroke, you'll get a dappled color and white pattern. So I had to carefully fill in ALL the white spaces. Curse ceiling tiles for being so freaking rough D:< SIDEWALK would be easier to paint on than ceiling tile.
Apparently Home Depot doesn't sell individually ceiling tiles, only in 20-packs, but they gave this one to me for free (probably because the upper left corner was already missing lol). And then Sammy tripped over the painting in orchestra and knocked off the upper right corner .-.
Anyways, what do you think?
