    Hi, on Monday I was given my GCSE Art AQA exam paper and I just need some help picking a topic to do so please could you recommend some good artists for these topics to me that will be easy to work with or interesting. The only problem I am having is that I don't want to do any 3D work or anything that will take up too much of my time as I have a lot of other subjects going on so preferably things I can just draw and paint/colour easily without constructing things.

    1) Food (a. fruit, b. sweets, c. shape, colour, form and/or texture in food)
    2) Fantastic and Strange
    3) Mixed Media
    4) The human condition (a. people and places, b. identity)
    5) Mark Making
    6) Spirals
    7) Ritual (a. own interpretation of the starting point ritual, b. traditional celebrations, c. sequence of actions that form an everyday ritual)

    I think the most interesting ones of those are:
    Fantastic and strange: You could do so much with that! Spirals and dark colours, freaky clowns, it could be awesome!
    Spirals: I just really like spirals :lol: intricate patterns with pen would look lovely
    Ritual: You could do something to do with another culture, like traditional African art or something

    I'm working on Fantastic and Strange, I think it's one of the most interesting topics but I'm finding it so hard to reference different artists, so far though I've found:
    - Tim Burton
    - Kelly Vivanco
    - Edward Gorey
    Also, I think 'whimsical art' is quite interesting, but I don't think there is a particular artist for it..☺️

    Sorry to just jump in, but I'm really stuck on what to do for mine
    I chose 'The Human [email protected] and I don't know whether to do about life and death or religion. I'm leaning towards religion, but is it too far off the title if I ask 'What does it mean to be human?' I think I want to say that everyone believes in something, and our thoughts are what make us human. So people can be affected by religion and certain events can sometimes make them lose faith.
    I really don't know what to do :')

    You can't copy an artist's piece as your final piece, it has to be your own idea. You should use one of your observational photos/images in the style of the artist, perhaps using the same layout or effect

    for fantastic and strange, you can explore different fields in art. I chose fantastic and strange narratives from greek mythology. Hindu mythology was also popular in my class.

    Hi I'm actually three days from taking that exam. Not sure if you are now. I chose fantastic and strange and I'm making a dress out of newspapers. I have to say the most interesting things to do is fantastic and strange or mixed media. There's a lot more option and flexibility on what you can do. I.e fantastic and strange a dress And mixed media a story book
    my friend is doing human Conedition and its good during the whole preparation there was a lot of good things to do copies of but is now struggling with the final piece. So yeah
    hope this helps

    i decided to go with the human condition, i had a wide range on studies and decided to look into body image, i did about vogue and unrealistic expectations for women, plastic surgery, makeup, eating disorders like anorexia and binge eating and combined a range of these with my primary evidence for my final piece however i'm worried that my exam won't live up to my coursework
