ANYA’S FRIDA KAHLO POP ART PROJECT

MY ART PROJECT GOAL

I wanted to turn a painting by a famous artist into the style of another. I chose to start with Frida Kahlo and her famous self portrait. I then animated it into Andy Warhol’s pop art style (specifically his Marilyn Monroe portrait with bright colours). Then I found music on youtube from the 1940’s for Frida and the 1960’s for Andy. I faded the two pieces of music to create mood.

THE TOOLS I LEARNT

The two main skills that I used were photo editing in Adobe Photoshop and animation in Adobe After Effects.

In Photoshop I learnt the following tools:

  • Masking

  • Painting

  • Cloning

  • Layering

In After Effects I learnt to use:

  • Key Frames

  • 3D Camera to create a parallax effect

  • Color Settings

  • Puppet Tool

  • Timeline


CONCLUSION

In using these two softwares for the first time, I enjoyed creating this project. It helped me understand the power of digital tools that are used for creativity. Finally, I also learnt about how different Frida Kahlo and Andy Warhol’s painting styles are.
