Youth of Halifax by Madeleine West
This documentary depicts my life in the last month and a half, when I started an art/community project drawing youth of Halifax. The project really kicked off once I was able to have a location to showcase my work. Becoming a member of the art community and reaching out to a local business owner has opened many doors for me, and I hope this film encourages more youth to be more involved in their community.
Madeleine West is a self-taught 16-year-old artist from Halifax. Her style is inspired by pin-ups and underground ’70s comix. She is constantly drawing in her spare time (when she can find some). Her other interests include viola, watching movies, live music and track and field. This is her first film.
