Artist Spotlight: Adrianna Biggers

Sidney Moyers, Reporter

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.


Adrianna (Aida) Biggers is a wonderful and creative artist who has been drawing for the majority of her life and can always be spotted with a pen and paper at hand. Having known her since middle school, I had the opportunity to watch her style improve and grow with age, dedication, and countless hours of practice.

Her current favorite artist is a man named Roland Topor, a surrealist in the 1900’s.

While she does enjoy viewing and creating traditional art on paper, she does prefer to draw digitally and has even used programs as simple as Microsoft Paint, which is difficult for most people.

For Aida, as well as many other artists, drawing is a fantastic coping mechanism and emotions are burning behind every one of her works, sparking different feelings in others. I asked Aida what she thinks of her own art and she responded with, “In a way, I love all of my art but also hate it at the same time.” Additionally, she says that while drawing can be a wonderful way to release emotions, it can also be quite frustrating at times, which is a common feeling amongst most people who are creatively involved with things such as writing, drawing, or even music. screenshot_20161024-141644

I asked Aida for advice if someone is unhappy with their skill set or has just started taking art seriously. She wants to remind people that “they should never stop trying,” and if they have to, they should “should sit down and draw 50 million circles with the hope that only one will turn out good.” This is because no one becomes good at drawing in just one night because all of the best artists in the world had to practice. It is one of her strong beliefs that everyone can be a great artist, you just have to put the time and effort into it.
