If you have stumbled across this art profile, it means that you have embarked into the crazy mind of Avali (Jai Wo)!!! I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I once learned from a good friend that you should never start a sketch book or online gallery without an Artist Statement- something profound and distinct that you want viewers to know about your artwork. So in respect to you, me, and this online gallery, I will do just that!
When it comes to personality, I like to stay positive, up beat,sunshine-happy, and inspiring which is often portrayed in my artwork. Color is the pinnacle of most of my works, but my style mainly evolves around whimsical designs that are also a fettish of mine. Through my artwork (or messy random sketches), I try to explore different nationalities and cultures with a brightness and excitement of learning. And I like to give a feeling through my style that hopefully encourages my viewers to stop and think about the world around them a little bit differently.
Even though most of my stuff is sketchy and random gibberish, I truly hope that you draw a sense of inspiration or postiveness from my gallery, and feel happy and beautiful for yourself. It may sound cheesy, but if my artwork can brighten someone else's day, that gives me all the more reason to continue what I'm doing.
I don't know if I've given this artist statement justice, but I hope you enjoy my gallery!
Feel free to drop a message or comment, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Requests are currently on hold right now for the lack of free time I have, but if you are interested in having me do a request, go ahead and send a message and I'll see what I can do.
Thanks to everyone who has ever commented or watched me grow as an artist!
Side Side Note:
Okay, so I know I just got around to updating and everything. I even revamped my profile page. But unfortunately, I wont be here as an active FAC member any longer. I plan on having this profile up for a while, and I may upload things from time to time, but I recently updated myself to a DeviantART gallery. I really wanted to start fresh with a new gallery so that I can continue to grow and develop my work, but its difficult to do that when there's two galleries, a website, and photobucket gallery to keep up with. So to condense my internet niche, I'm announcing that I am leaving FAC.
I want to thank all of the friends and views who took time to view my work and give their consent. Without you, I wouldn't have gotten this far. If you would like to see more of my new work, simply go to my website. (I'll be posting there quite a lot.) And I'll be putting a link to my DA page here soon.
Again. Thank you so much FAC. I wouldn't have strived to come this far if I hadn't started this profile three years ago. Thank you everybody!
