What country is the artist from? Great Britain Great Britain is a political term describing the combination of the Kingdom of England, Kingdom of Scotland, Principality of Wales and the Duchy of Cornwall. I found an interactive map at this link: http://www.yourchildlearns.com/e urope_map.htm http://www.yourchildlearns.com/e urope_map.htm
My favorite design. Waste Painting #2 Description: It is a painting of high intensity colors that are streaking vertically across a pitch black background. It looks like it was made on a computer because the colors blend smoothly and it looks like light is shining through the background. The colors are violet, magenta, light green, royal blue and light blue green.
What does it mean and what would I do with it?: It is a painting so I would hang it on the wall in my living room. I would like to look at it during different times of the day to see how the light in the room changes the way it looks. I think it means that art can be about colors and light. It makes me think about how computers have become a new tool for artists to use to communicate ideas. I like the way the colors seem to float and how the green in the center looks like it is in the background. The magenta and purples are popping out closer to the viewer.
Why I chose Peter Saville. I chose this artist for several reasons. First, I love graphic arts and I consider myself a graphic artist. I worked for a printing company and designed artwork for over 14 years. Secondly, this artist designed album covers for bands that I like.
Why I like Saville continued The bands include New Order and the album cover for the single Blue Monday looks like this: and the song goes like this: http://www.mp3.com/albums/1 1415/summary.html http://www.mp3.com/albums/1 1415/summary.html
