“Painting as an Identity” is the exhibition by the 2nd year students of the painting department at the Estonian Academy of Arts. The audience will witness self-reflections of young painters which can also be recognised as auto portraits. One’s artistic practice is a journey to seek for its personal identity – a journey the students have dealt with over the past half a year when approaching the large scale canvas. The supervisors have taken a role to ask critical questions to support students to analyse each step on decision-making thoroughly. Big canvas has become the only, but solid connecting unit between ten different approaches amongst the authors.
