My name is Adnan Babandede, I’m 16 and i’m my final year of secondary school, I’m basically done since i’m graduating in June. I’ve been into art for as long as i can remember, i’m self taught. Visual art and music are my outlets, i aim to be doing them till I’m old and grey.I took a long break from art in 2016 but it’s cool since I came back better than i was before. I dream of becoming a successful artist and i hope this dream becomes a reality, but till that happens i’m calm.

THE FORMAL HANDOUT

This talks about wealthy men who are submissive to their superiors in terms of social status and wealth. What drove me to do this piece were the politicians in our country that submit themselves to their superiors, either for money or for an increase in their social status.

 

 

“Central value” a.k.a “ice”

The reason why it is called “Central Value” is because i believe that the heart is the most important part of a person, since it is so important and it is of such value the piece is literally flashing, flaunting and showing it off by making it the centre piece of a chain. For those that are not in tuned with their emotions, the heart is still important because without it one wouldn’t be able to live.The reason why it is called ice is because when a person is cold hearted, the heart becomes as cold/icey as the diamonds on a chain, so yeah, ice.

 

“A MAN’S WORLD”

So basically, the story behind this piece is i was up at midnight, i had no one to talk to, nothing to do and i was horny as hell. Everybody gets horny so y’all judgy ones should stfu. So i decided to draw a nude woman. I won’t even lie, i asked a couple friends but they said they’d send “later”. so i just took a picture off the internet and i used that. I really like this piece because it’s my first piece that had to do with the female body, which i believe is art in itself. i hope to do more pieces on the female body to try and capture the beauty in it. People that know me know that i’m a sexual person so i’m into this stuff. I got the name from a statement A$AP Rocky made in an interview where he says “It’s a man’s world, but pussy makes the world go round”

All my life I’ve always wanted to create animations, i didn’t merely just watch cartoons as a child, i wanted to create mine;to take my ideas and turn them into two dimensional pieces of art. My toons serve as a stepping stone towards achieving my dream. I began drawing toons after secondary school in preparation for life ahead as an animator.
