The Red Tale
The main conceptI focused on this year was folktales such as legendary myths and mystical creatures. Folktales and myths are symbolic and represents different cultures, allowing them to express their identity as an individual and community within their culture. Within my final artwork, I decided to link my subject matter to the Asian Chinese culture as this was achieved through the depiction of the dragon as dragons are known to belong within Asian mystical creatures. Through the usage of vibrant and bold colours such as red and gold, this reflected wealth and royalties of China, as these colours are highly evident among their silk material, yet known to be worn only by those in the higher-socio economics in traditional times, thus is reflected by my subject matter.
