This art piece is a response to my recent frustration in being blocked on social media for my nude art pieces looking too realistic. I'm fascinated in Australian history, philosophy and politics, this lead me to a mixed combination in how I'd express my frustration in how media allows violence and weapons to be shown, though blocks nudity. I have since been unblocked on my social media accounts, though still find it strange that I have to blur a painting with a nipple as apposed to the freedom of showing art with violence, murder or destruction without issue. I guess I have a different way of seeing things, but I'll continue to push my perspective through nude art pieces and expressive focus points.
I must say, I'm absolutely stoked with the outcome of this piece as a political focus and artistic creation. I think this piece is sure to spark conversation and debate at your next gathering!

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ashvin Harrison creates art that visually speaks of his personal beliefs and nature. As a result of experiences in life and an obsession with the contrasts of life and death through his interested in the philosophies on existentialism, he flow towards visual representations of thoughts and motivations to create art. Ashvin Harrison mainly creates high contrast photorealism nude, realistic figurative expressionism portraits and expressive realism nature art pieces. Most commonly he uses charcoal as this dark natural substance reminds him of the positive beauty that can be found in bringing a cold, dark and dead material back to a representation of beautiful life- helping to make sense of my existence and purpose for such. He uses colour as an expression of emotion, life or movement. How he feels day to day impacts the use of colour, technique and subject. Education Ashvin Harrison is a self taught artist. He dropped out of school, but now has a few unrelated certificates and a bachelors degree Before becoming a full-time artist in 2017, he worked in 30 different fields, jumping from job to job "I've worked as a teacher, child safety investigation officer, Google Maps tech, cabinet maker, apprentice chef, training hairdresser, cleaner and musician to name a few. I guess I get bored easily."View Profile »
