Hi! I’m Jitan. I am currently a sophomore at New York City Lab School. I live in downtown Manhattan and in Brooklyn. I heard about Youth Insights through other museum programs I was part of. This is my second semester of YI Writers, and I chose to do the program again because I wanted the opportunity to work with different artists and learn new techniques.
Art is commonly thought of as a form of expression, and I think this is true. I like that can art mean something personal and something different to the creator and the viewer. It interests me when artists choose to show a different side of human nature in their work. My favorite artists right now are Damien Hirst and Elizabeth Peyton. I love photography and cinematography. Many different films inspire and motivate me to create my own work. In the future, I hope to study art or design. I want to eventually be creating more art and literature than I do now.
