Virtual tour of KAWS Exhibition inspires Year 8 student


Year 8 Art Design student Jamie-Leigh Hearne was inspired to produce this artwork following her first online class. Jamie-Leigh had never been to the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), but students were asked to take a virtual tour of the KAWS Exhibition:

Ms Kate Verbeek, Art Design Teacher

“I was inspired by the artwork in the KAWS: Companionship in the Age of Loneliness Exhibition. Specifically, I was inspired by a lot of pieces which had a cartoon head on a realistic body or, like ‘Simpsons’ pieces, how the body was normal, but the head was changed. Working online has broadened my experience through seeing different types of art online at the NGV Melbourne website. Before seeing the art at the gallery, I would never have even thought about going to a gallery or deciding to put a cat head on a regular-looking body.”
