Description

The ocean is a very mysterious part of our earth, we have only explored 3% of it, and have already discovered so many strange creatures, such as, the vampire squid, small spine spookfish, blackdragon fish, and also the black swallower. To make this installation mysterious and stunning, I decided to portray them as if they were old horror movie posters. I decided to pursue this research to show people these magnificent creatures, and I decided to do so with the visual arts to them in a mysterious way. To do so, I decided to use acrylic paints and paper, like how they made old horror movie posters, by hand. Using these I have created paintings that show that there are very strange and mysterious creatures on our planet right now, which people may not even know about. My goal is that my results will spark a curiosity in people, and maybe one day, humankind will try harder to discover more in our oceans.
