We asked this artist to be our valentine, and his answer was heart-melting — literally
Just in time for Valentine's Day, Jeff Woodrow has made some sweet art to share with your sweetheart
For the past year, multidisciplinary artist Jeff Woodrow has been challenging himself to create one new artwork each week to post to his Instagram page. They range from illustrated subway sleepers to a wooden Gameboy to monochromatic photography to a colourful Jagmeet Singh. This week, we asked him to be our Valentine, and he gave us his heart — all three of them.
Even though Jeff says it didn't turn out as planned, we thought "the sweetheart" was still pretty sweet. We've included it and a few other samples of Jeff's experiments that could warm even the coldest heart.
"Inspiration comes in the form of personal experiences, general observations and found objects. I particularly like finding inspiration in the mundane. Whether or not the piece resonates, I hope that there is some appreciation for the time and effort put forth."
Growing up in Bradford, ON and now teaching Innovation and Design at the United World College of Thailand, he credits his love of process and creative problem solving to his mother's resourcefulness in raising three children.
"The aim is to learn and experiment. For me, creating is a compulsion and I see great value in seeing a project through to the end."
