It has become apparent how much collaborating with other artists can be of benefit. Almost all of the guest speakers we have had for this module have spoke about working with other creatives on numerous levels to create work. For example, Layla Sailor’s collaboration with the fabric and textile designer for her kokoshnik series.
I have a friend who graduated with an art degree a few years ago and now mainly does Oil paintings – in particular portraits. Me and her are planning a huge Guerilla gardening inspired project for summer where we will be using the abandoned space on top of bus shelters to create miniature secret gardens which make comment about various issues within that space, weather that be littering or something more prominent.
As well as this me and Lauren Cain and potentially Madeline Wheeler also are planning on working on a group project upon graduation.
