For the week 2 artist I chose Mathew Usinowicz. He attends UCSB and he is a former US Navy Sailor, which probably is why he painted a submarine for this picture. His piece that I liked the most was German Whiners. I liked it because it was two things that were German, similar shapes, however not so similar in size. In his art work he decreased the size of the submarine and increased the size of the hot dog. If he were there I would have asked him questions like, “Why did you add the colorful lines in the background of the painting?” Also questions like, “Why German?” I would also like to know how long he was in the Navy for, because I am in Army ROTC, giving us some common values to serve our country.
