The teen talent is blossoming day by day. Recently, a 14 years old lad welcomed the applause of the world for his awe – inspiring art work. Zev Hoover is the inhabitant of Massachusetts America, is nicknamed as “Fiddle Oak”. His sister Nellie, 17, is his equal partner in this oeuvre.
Through self- portrait, an artist delineates himself to his best. So did Zev, he presented himself in an image of a tiny boy, a bantam perhaps. This can be seen in every picture of him where the natural or the artificial settings act as strikingly eminent, and he as a tiny little boy. In short, he played as a ‘little folk’ in the pictures.
Zev’s Self – Portraits Worth Ovation
The backdrop, the hero, the settings, the atmosphere all seems of an imaginary world, somewhat like a fairy land or a dreamy world. He seems to render an unknown, complex world where no one has reached for now in his self-portraits. The alignment of colors, the tone and the shadow matching, the double-dyed adjustment, everything in this beautiful manipulation is incredible.
Twilight and Amorous Settings
The nighttime, the identical color of the sky and the water, and the candle light strewing the romance and serenity in the atmosphere is captivating. The circle in the water, the shadows sketching is equally mesmerizing. There, you can see a boy sitting with a girl enjoying the peaceful ambiance.
Flaring Fire Image
An image presents Zev walled by the blazing fire. The star is standing in the middle of the flare, awaiting for the divine help perhaps or just relishing the natural destructive element. The color combination and the fiery bubbles make this self – portrait luminous.
The Piano Stride
A lonely, tiny boy, strolling contorted on a piano looks like a mythical creature. The picture is grayish in color with a little vibrancy in it. Zev introduces himself in an array of Charlie Chaplin with a stick in his hand, perhaps savoring the music that his feet play while shambling on the pianoforte.
Thought the idea behind the tiny creature is of Nellie, but the credit of the execution of pictures goes to Zev Hooker.
