Final Art Pieces

Wanted to post these some time ago, here they are:

Some self-portraits of myself, the one below playing a guitar in a crowd

This is my final exam piece:

An excerpt of the description I wrote:

The two sides are almost mirror images of each other, with each side depicting a different part of the identity and culture of America and Singapore respectively. The artist wishes to portray the distinct differences between the two cultures, as well as showing how Globalization has caused Americanization in Singapore. The aspects of transportation, food, living, housing, military, architectural icons, flora, freedom of speech and climate are involved in this comparison. Each country offers a different point of view, and one can observe the contrast by seeking the mirror image on the other side. Some components of the identity are similar, while other portions of the identity are drastically different. There are also two icons which actually overlap the two sides.
