About the artist: Ashvin Harrison started creating visual art to express the beauty of existence as he sees it each day. Being a self-taught artist, his work consists of expressionism, realism and street art style pieces, using his own unique technique and style. His expressive use of color brings movement and energy to his dance and animal portraits, while his charcoal figure drawings breathe a sense of eroticism.
*Note: The word Pietà finds its origins in the Italian word for “pity” and the Latin word for “piety”, giving it a sense of “compassion” and “devotion” altogether. Apparent from the depiction of Mary and her dead son in her lap, the compassion of the mother towards her dead son is quite obvious. My musical choice is I love Air by Bach & Pietà by Michelangelo. The video shows detailed features of the sculpture and its humanistic elements.
*Note: What is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution? The theory of evolution by natural selection, first formulated in Darwin’s book “On the Origin of Species” in 1859, is the process by which organisms change over time as a result of changes in heritable physical or behavioral traits.
