this actually happened
Hi your self-portrait is very cool! How have you created material etc? I would love to know

oh y thank you!

i totally just wrote a srs art tutorial for you and the internet because i’m in denial about my finals. i’m in… final denial. [booed off stage]

things i used:

  • wood (lots)
  • acrylic paint (also brushes, gesso)
  • bar clamps (two big ones, a shit ton of smaller ones)
  • wood glue
  • manic-depressive attention to detail and a willingness to keep pushing onward

the self-portrait is painted on what’s called a lenticular canvas. there are two paintings on its surface, so that when you walk from one side to the other, the image you see changes based on your perspective. (i really wish i’d documented this process better, so have some shitty visualizations.)

image

to build the canvas i bought a bunch of planks of cheap wood from a reuse shop then cut em up on the table saw into 23 (weird number) 1x1x20-something inch rectangular sticks. i also made 22 additional shorter 1x1 sticks to support the back.

image

image

i then clamped the sticks together to create one “canvas,” gessoed the whole thing, and painted the first surface.

image

when that dried, i unclamped the canvas, turned all the sticks by 90 degrees, then clamped them again and painted the second surface.

image

image

(^an irl process picture)

when the two paintings were finished (this was the tricky part), i had to construct the canvas stick by stick in portions, until it was all in one piece. i used many bar clamps and one metric fuckton of wood glue. (there are probably better ways to do this.)

image

image

and voila! thing!

image

i hope… that made ANY sense. i’m happy to share these art secrets, mostly because they aren’t mine. i stole the idea from a street artist called ROA, who is dope. i just reverse-engineered what he did. you should check him out! hope this helps! [spontaneously combusts]
