Hey 🙂 my name is Abreana and I am a Fine Art student at university. My blog might give you an idea of the kind of person I am — apologies if I write too much.
Languages I speak: English, German
I have only had one penpal before and it was amazing, however we cannot send letters any more because we live in the same flat now 🙂 to have that again would really push me in this stage of life and I love working through personal feelings and taking openly about the things in our lives. Question things and question each other 😀
I am very dedicated to my work, and my art practice is all over the place :/ I like making film and atm using performance as a way of researching. Things I see in my work (though who knows!) critical thinking, passive aggression, sexuality, empathy and ethology? I like the idea of being more confident to do more improv dance also.
Books/Films/TV Shows/music I like:
(Just so you know… I’m unsure about defining myself by these sorts of interests? But I guess it say a little about the kind of person I am????)
Books (Well my top books on Goodreads): Ultra-gash Inferno by Suehiro Maruo, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, The Doll by Hans Bellmer, The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, Too Dark To See by Julia Gfrörer, Sex and the Floating World by Timon Screech…
Films: 2001: A Space Odyssey, You Are Not Alone, Persepolis, XXY, Homeland, Life is Sweet, Koyaanisqatsi, Sleeping Beauty (2011 with Emily Browning), Alien 9, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind…
Art: Takato Yamamoto, Tejal Shah, Hans Bellmer, Suehiro Maruo, H.R. Giger, Kara Walker, Mandy Havers, Daria Martin, Alessandro Bavari, Akino Kondoh, Erica Eyres, Julia Gfrörer (Her comics make up some of my favourites), Jillian Iscaro… Loads more!!!
Music:I Monster (possibly my favourite band ever), Yes, Portishead, Jeff Wayne, Liars, Daft Punk, Simone White, The Avalanches, Visage, Japan, maxnormal.tv, Tears for Fears, Rolo Tomassi, Fleetwood Mac, Deee-Lite, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Air, Grouper, Arthur Brown, System of a Down… Loads more!!!
What I would like in a penpal:age does not bother me too much, however 18-30 sounds alright; anywhere in the universe; English or Deutsch and male or female. Creepy people are OK however people (only men have done this online, sorry) with malicious or fake intentions please stop.
If you like drawing or sending photos or anything artsy I would love to make it more than just writing.
