To start off with My name is Aylee Martinez and I chose to use canva and I decided to show on my project the even if your Any different culture or race that you shouldn’t try to be any different race or culture just because you’re in embarrassed.So,I wanted to show that even if any race,you’re not Alone because there is many more people with your race around the world.Lastly,My project shows that My race is being Mexican and that I’m not ashamed to be an Mexican because I should be Proud of my culture and Race,but what I’m trying to show is that you should always be proud of your race and culture as well to not think what other people are saying.
My entry shows that I am from more than one country and that I am unique in my very own way. Looking into the eye symbolizes that if you get to know someone and their personality, you can get to know their history and where they’re from. My eye shows that I am from Germany, Wales, Jamaica, and America.
My art entry is a picture that honors Frida Kahlo. She was really special because even though she had a lot of problems when she was young, she grew up to be a famous artist. My picture shows how amazing she was and how she showed that you can be many things at once. I want people to see my picture and feel inspired to be proud of who they are, no matter what challenges they face.
Presented in front raised off the canvas i have drawn a representation of me and who others perceive me to be in black and white. I look dull and lifeless with a stoic face and almost bored expression. the color represents me and who i am. both the fluidness of the color showing my gender and sexualitity being fluid and not something one expects. The different colors and their symbolism illustrate the meanings of what people think of me after they’ve gotten to know me the colors and the textures i bring out to them about who i am to them and what makes me me. this relates back to the prompt as to my pride as well as how i feel empowered in myself is by the encouragement of those around me while keeping in mind the don’t judge a book by its cover.
As the shadows in the image show, on the outside we are all very similar, we all look like the same silhouettes with just simple differences. But sometimes it is important to look beyond what unites everyone and instead look at what sets us apart from the world. Whether it be culture, gender, sexuality, or something else entirely, there are ways we identify ourselves every day. And while these things might set us apart from everyone they also bring us closer to those who share the same identification factors, allowing us to build communities and families with those with who we can connect and relate to.
