Suzi Quatro – painted denim vest

I painted this vest to wear to Suzi Quatro’s Melbourne concert at Hamer Hall on 18-02-17.
I planned to transfer the artwork, which was drawn with a heat transfer pencil on baking paper, with an iron but it didn’t work, hence the wonky text.
I used normal acrylic paints mixed with Jo Sonja’s textile medium. I also sealed the paint with this textile medium.
The silver studs were added, and prior to painting I did spray bleach onto parts of the vest to lighten the areas I was going to paint on.

Growing up in the Sunraysia region of Victoria, I had an interest in visual art since age 8. After completing my Bachelor of Visual Arts (Graphic Design) in 2010, I went on to work as a photojournalist for the next 2 years. Due to chronic health issues, I now enjoy less strenuous forms of visual art, such as drawing, painting and film. I love experimenting with different mediums. Except oil paint. I'm not willing to give that a second chance...
