Hello my name is Pandora Owl, self taught artist who recently decided to follow my art passions.
My art focuses on mental health & illness in order to help comfort those who suffer from it as well as exposing it to those who don’t. I leverage mixed media in order to tell stories, often referencing my youth by incorporating items such as comics or toys; a style developed in my art class back in high school. My textured mixed media art has many layers that can be seen and felt but most importantly ignite and continue the conversation of mental health as it’s increasingly making its way to the forefront.
ABOUT "Youth" Painting:
An Original mixed media painting with at least a 100+ toy soldiers on a 30x40 inch canvas.
Inspired by the increasingly amount of school shootings that have occurred in 2018. Hence why the colours in the background are very light to provide a youthful & hopeful feel.
The footprints within the gun itself is a general visual representation of the lives lost in these tragic acts.
