This week, I explored some more aesthetics and sketched them out using the Adobe Sketch app on my iPad Pro.
The first is a bright art nouveau style aesthetic because I love the curves and a little bit of symmetry but chaos in the background depicted by the bright colors. The bright colors are reminiscent of Holi (Festival of Colors) which is a great festival celebrated in India and a lot of places around the world. This helps me express my mind which likes to think in simple symmetric thoughts, but is often running in different directions and can be chaotic. I am also studying fluids and the curves in the art nouveau style resemble some of the curves seen in fluid flows.
The second is a space aesthetic depicting lots of stars and some galaxies. This is inspired by my fascination for space and all things space related! It does not have a particular 20th century art movement directly associated with it. However, it comes close to existentialism considering the fact that space represents emptiness or something so large that we cannot even comprehend it. It is daunting.
The final aesthetic is a simple geometric ‘less is more’ design. I am thinking of using Fibonacci numbers and improving the design but that’s only if I decide to go with this.
