As usual, I'm amazed by what the kids come up with.
In this one, Alex found an artist, Eugene Soloviev, with whose work he became smitten. "I really enjoyed making this piece because Soloviev's style really appeals to me. The idea behind Soloviev's pieces is that he takes two things that don't belong together and put them in a "different" background. In my piece I took a tiger and a house cat and put them underwater to portray a cat's distaste for water. Furthermore, it's sort of ironic that the tiger is chasing a house cat. I had a slow start to this piece, but I am pleased with how it turned out." Alex
