Identity collage project inspired by artist Martin O’Neill

Our students recently created “identity collages” inspired by illustrator and artist, Martin O’Neill. For over 20 years O’Neill has been creating unique collages for a wide range of international clients encompassing advertising, design, editorial and publishing. Each of our students used this approach to create a unique collage which represents their own personalities, likes, hopes and dreams. Come down to the art center and check these masterpieces out while they’re up!

Check out the awesome self-expression project all our students did!

Our students from 5 different classes created subway poster art similar, to that of artist Keith Haring, on black board with white chalk. Students represented themselves in both words and drawings, like that of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. The final piece was then photographed and digitally applied to their very own business card, reflecting their own stories, and ultimately, their “brand.”

Friends, family, students, teachers, and all of LT Cherokee’s ‘seeds’ came together this past weekend for a very special event that showcased (for the first time ever!) most of LT’s sculptures, together in one unified space. His pieces were brought in from not only local spots, but from as far as Canada. It was a beautiful evening celebrating the life, love, and artwork of our beloved friend and master sculptor, LT Cherokee.
