My name is Ella Punch, and for my MYP Personal Project I have completed a street art like mural from spray paint. After travelling and collecting inspiration from artists in Australia and around the world, I have chosen to design and paint the piece in my room.

I have always been a huge fan of designing art and finding new styles to use. One of my goals in this project is to discover new techniques and learn how to paint on large scale. I have recently travelled to different places, such as; Melbourne, New Zealand and China. These destinations have all inspired me to take a risk with art styles and helped me find my love for street art.

In a previous year level, I completed an art assessment that introduced me to one-line drawing. One-line drawing is a technique where there is a single line being used to create simple and complex designs. I have continued this love for this style, I have now incorporated this into my MYP product.

Before I completed my final product, I practiced using spray paint. As I have never used spray paint to create art before, I wanted to make sure I had some of the basic skills and learnt new patterns.

During the holidays, I spent five days, designing, preparing and completing my mural. Even though this was a challenging process, I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself in the art. This has affirmed my passion for art and will continue to further my skill set and my confidence when being creative. I am hoping to help inspire young artists to take the risk of branching out and trying new forms of art.

Overall, I am extremely proud of my end product. When I first decided to take on this challenge, my product now, is not what I envisioned but even better. I am very thankful that my parents allowed me to spray paint on my wall.
