Title: “Kawai harajuku”

Theme: Imagination

Materials and techniques: Acrylic paint (and others), paint brushes

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, it was a thrilling experience.

About: My artwork is about the imagination and creativity of Harajuku and the freedom of dressing how you want. The many uses of the languages is to show my being able to speak several different languages and how the world is united and we all are equal. It also shows the difference between today’s society and the older centuries. The holding of the worlds shows the involvement of all the countries.
