Dorian Schwartz - Third Place
I am a 21 year old psychology student living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I have painted my entire life and have participated in various art shows here in Winnipeg. I appreciate anything that allows one to express themselves in a healthy and creative way and I will continue to paint for my entire life.
I have always been inspired by those who delve full force into doing what they love, in particular by those who let their passion become their work. I created this piece at a time in my life when societal pressures to conform and find a stable career with a steady income were weighing heavy on my 20 year old soul. The bright color and out of control expression symbolizes my inner longing to express myself creatively, while the black frame like shapes symbolize the fear I hold of having to fit within the boundaries that society places upon me.
