Art exhibit: The Walking Bread
Posted 15th May 2014
The Walking Bread is an art series that I produced, which went on to gain worldwide attention. My intention for each scene was for the bread to have a very simple quality, whilst the composition and lighting effects would build a level of complexity for resembling key scenes from the television show - The Walking Dead.
By striking a balance between the simplicity of the abstract and complexity of the emotive similarity to the scenes being portrayed, I was able to incite an exciting reaction within the mind of the viewer; this is due to the way that the human brain relates recognisable similarities, and then bridges any gaps to move from the abstract into something more recognisable.

The work was also featured on highly acclaimed website - Comic Book Resources (CBR), and a variety of other websites such as Designs you trust, as well as throughout social media.
