Bachelor Student Art Tribute


Vis Com Lecturer Thaw Naing pays tribute to the Bachelor class of 2015 with this stunning art banner. The banner includes all of the original stories and characters created by Bachelor students last year. 

“Last year the students were creating interesting stories– probably more interesting than they gave themselves credit for – and I was itching to have some fun. It was also a bit of a thank you to the class for ploughing through a busy year.

The hardest part of this painting was finding a style that could work for the wide range of characters, and let me remain as faithful as I could to the student’s characters. I can now see that most of the painting decisions were made early and fairly quickly during the colour-rough stage.

I had to chip away at this painting bit by bit over several months. The first few characters were difficult to solve but then it snowballed from there and I ended up painting half of the whole thing in one night.”

We can't think of a better way to celebrate amazing student artwork and creativity.
