Liquid Art House

I visited Liquid Art House in 2016, an innovative gallery restaurant that offers a fine dining experience where you can enjoy and purchase local artworks while having your meal. I loved my time there and decided to create something for them just for fun. I did not actually submit my work to them. Nonetheless, I created this project with the idea of submitting my work to them in mind. This project is a photomontage in which I used one of the photos I took, repurposed it, and made it into a rich and vibrant patterned image.



My idea was inspired by a book by Austin Kleon, ‘Steal Like An Artist’. From his work, I learned to combine different creative concepts and transform it into one. I approached it by using two of my different skills–photography and graphic design; combining both to produce this project.

I like bold colors. I believe they affect our emotions, and I enjoy seeing people’s reactions to my work. In this photomontage, I added strong colors to make the details look sharper with the hope to elicit different emotions out of the people I share my work with.


I used Digital Camera, Adobe Photoshop, and Vsco, I made this photomontage with one of the pictures I took from my travels around the world. I used multiple copies of the same photo and combined it into one. My goal was to create a vibrant image (or ‘pattern’) that grabs people’s attention, and invites them to experience the intricate details of the pattern.

People enjoyed my work. I received many positive feedback from friends, family, art enthusiasts, and experts alike. I especially loved the fact that people were drawn into my patterns. This showed me that I achieved the goal I first set out with when starting this project. And through this project, I learned many new things about people–understanding their emotions through my work.

I believe that people have many different kinds of ideas and hobbies, and I think that anyone who has the will can make the most out of them. You will never know how creative you are until you actually do it.
