Robyn Roxanne Williams and Allaina Mae Williams - Young Talented Artists
The two sisters Robyn and Allaina are two exceptionally talented young women inspired by their parents love for art and music. They are becoming artist in their own right. Each with different a style, but a deep sense of God’s blessing on their abilities.
Robyn the explorer, said it was always challenging finding what her preferred art style was and struggled finding a medium that defined her as an artist. She loves experimenting with different mediums. Bleach on black paper fascinated her because you are always surprised at the outcomes. Robyn loves finding beauty in the unusual and wants to highlight how certain conditions affect people and in particularly how peer pressure impacts the younger generation.
In her words: “I want to challenge people’s thoughts, even if it has to make them feel uncomfortable."
Allaina grew up in a loving and happy environment where she was blessed to experience how awesome God is. She loves being surrounded by nature and loves art because it gives her an opportunity to express herself. Allaina believes art should impact people and make them happy. She says art creates a feeling of serenity and should inspire discovery and creativity. It brings her a lot of joy when she sees the expression on people’s faces when they view her art. In
Allaina's words: "I want to capture moments where people can experience the world through my eyes and where there is peace amongst the chaos. My art should make people aware of the problems in society as well as realise the awesomeness of a creator."
Ashley Williams - Young Talented Artists
There must be a connection between art, creativity, talent and the surname Williams.
Ashley Williams is a talented young artist who has exhibited at GroundZEROCultureCLUB a number of times. Every time she has done something new. She is a deep thinker and absolutely hates photographs of herself but loves expressing herself, without conforming to society, in her art. She says: "I get to create whatever I want and when I am done I feel good about myself. For me the best thing about art is that I am free to do what I want without people telling me its wrong. When I complete an artwork I want people to walk away and remember what I did, I want them to think about why I painted or drew it in the way I did. Art is not just something you look at, it is something you feel."
Art is such a powerful tool of expression. It has the potential to impacts both the artist and the viewer. Many young adults have been blessed with exceptional talent but never get the opportunity to showcase their work. GroundZEROCultureCLUB provides a platform where young artist like Robyn, Ashley and Allaina can exhibit, get feedback and connect with other artists.
We invite galleries to join us so that these young talented artists can be nurtured and gain well deserved exposure.
