Archimboldo was an artist, who originated from Italy. He was an usual artist as he created portraits from nature. He particularly liked using fruit, vegetables, flowers and fish. He created images using the seasons to depict the colours. Over this unit of work the children will be creating their own portrait in the style of Archimboldo and will be using different techniques such as, shade, line, texture and creating a three-dimensional image.
These are our first attempts at designing an image in the style of Archimboldo.
During week two we began to create our 2D faces.
In the true style of Archimboldo we used fruit and vegetables to create our 3D sculptures. We needed to consider the positions of the fruits and vegetables and the depth of 3D that we wanted to achieve.
Our sculptures using fruit and vegetables in the style of Archimboldo.
During week three we had the opportunity to use clay to sculpt our Archimoboldo faces. We used fruits, vegetables and someone used different chocolates. We also continued to create facial features by layering our images to create more of a three dimensional aspect for some of the features.
