Troy Rainier – Mental wellbeing and social media

Artist’s Statement: Thesis: How peoples’ mental wellbeing and physical appearance is being impacted by Social Media.
For my Symposium Art Project I decided to create a visual arts presentation that’s a painting which depicts a bird comparing themselves to the twitter logo, this I thought would be very similar to how people compare themselves to social media influencers/celebrities. The reason behind my decision for making this art presentation was because of how many studies I’ve read about the negative effects that are caused with people comparing themselves to famous influencers/celebrities on social media. With this painting I wanted for the bird to represent an actual person looking at their phone and then the twitter logo to represent a famous social media influencer/celebrity.
