PLEASE ANSWER (OR TRY TO ANSWER) THIS!!!!!!!!!?
I have asked this question twice already, with hardly any responses (3). My my art coursework I need to create a large textiles mural sort of thing which combines Aboriginal and urban culture. I really need some ideas, because I have already wasted my time with it, as I had started, found it looked awful and am starting again. The canvas is a large square with bricks printed onto the top right hand corner and the bottom left hand corner. I also have a banksy figure on the bottom corner.
I need any ideas you can give me, ANY IDEAS PLEASE!!!!!
There are many beautiful patterns in Aboriginal Art see, eg. http://www.aboriginalartstore.com.au/?g=2&gclid=CJWrqL3dlZUCFRdqQgodgQL0Tg
Why don’t you fill the whole space of your canvas with different patterns but leave a large sprawling area empty at the centre of yur canvas. Here one could put in buildings representing a modern city – e.g. high rise buildings, streets with cars. You could depict this built up area in such a way that the viewer gets the impression that a modern city is gradually swallowing up land which was once the home of Aboriginees. (Land represented by their traditional patterns).
I am not sure how the banksy figure which you have already put in to your mural relates to this idea. But perhaps you can think of something, or else remove it completely.
