About the artwork (“Color the Season” Artwork Youth Category Winner):
“The Color of Sound” by Sydney Morain
Medium: Digital, made on a Wacom Cintiq 16 (Clip Studio Pro)
Artist Statement: In this piece, I wanted to represent what I think sound would look like if you could see it. When I had this idea, I wanted to display the light and darkness of music by using different saturations of the colors. Using the different layers of the mandala, I wanted to show the different movements in a piece of music.
