Yuvraj Dhunna  (Year 9)


This term Year 9 have been studying comic books and graphic novels. To start the project boys analysed how comic book artists utilised perspective to add depth and drama to their compositions. In this masterful drawing, Yuvraj has enlarged the original design and produced an incredibly detailed study of Spiderman climbing a city building. He has perfectly captured the foreshortening of Spiderman’s body and has added life to the scene through soft tonal shading.


Dawud Ahmad (Year 10)


Dawud has produced this large A1 self-portrait using silk screen printing, he was inspired by the work of Andy Warhol and his series of prints of Mick Jagger. This is a lively and personal portrait which captures the energy of Warhol and Pop Art.


Ridma Suriyagoda (Lower Sixth)

In this study Ridma has created a portrait exploring the role of the artist/graffiti writer using water colour and inks, he has created a delicate and beautiful image of what could be an alarming figure in a mask. This work is part of his AS Level research and exploration.
