Video: My approach to figure drawing


‘The human body is a collection of balls and sticks’

This video came about when I was making an online tutorial for Headway East London’s art studio, Submit to Love, in collaboration with the Barbican Guildhall Creative Learning team. The video demonstrated a simplified style of monoprinting using low-cost materials. It was released under the title ‘Cut-Price Portraits’ on YouTube, but as I was making it, I started to question my own approach, so I literally explained to myself in video what it was about the Samuel Fosso self-portrait I used in the printing workshop that spoke to me as an artist.
