About the Tote Bag:
This tote bag is a representation of my interests in art combined with something that others can utilize. The buildings painted on the bag represent my future career as an architect and the flowers and butterflies represent my love for nature. I have always been interested in creating a more abstract and loose type of art to allow for multiple interpretations of my design and I feel that my tote bag helps present my style as an artist. Both the cityscape and nature are common themes that many people enjoy. I created this piece for everyone and hope they can carry something in it that helps release their emotional baggage if that is a book, art, or anything else or they use the bag in a way that makes them happy. The contrast between the black and white paint and the bright colored string symbolizes the emergence of happiness in a darker time. My concept also develops upon the theme of emotional baggage. The nature thriving in a city environment is an example of adapting to difficulty and that is something we as a society experienced during the pandemic and my art is a metaphor of people being able to grow no matter what.
