Gift From The Nature
Nine 8R sizez photos of blooming sunflowers symbolize the beauty and amazement of life. The lives of man and flowers are similar. Both go through birth, aging and death. Life is a treasure and there is no turning back, one should take whatever it brings him/her.
â€œTo do or not to doâ€? takes one on a roller coaster ride that makes one totally confused. If you too are unsure of your life or are having two minds about some decisions, then you need to find solace in words of wisdom.
Paintings & Drawings
The Beautiful Monster
Everyone interested in wildlife dreams of an encounter with their hero animal. For me, I am obsessed with rays since I met all sorts of them in the Ocean Park. They could be mistaken for strange-looking birds but these creatures are actually manta rays, leaping a staggering nine feet in the air, like a beautiful monster.
Himitsu, the Japanese word of â€œsecretâ€?, represents my innermost feelings, which have been buried deep down in my heart, something I have done or something others have done to me. Those feelings cut me off from life. Holding onto secrets wears me down emotionally, mentally and physically. The girl besides the tress, I, would like to move from bondage to freedom.
The four seasons in the painting represent a try, frustration, failure and success respectively. I have been encountering all these in my life. Success is the destination, while failure is how I get there. Time flies. The bird always hope to be free from the limitation of time. Too little time to do what it wants to do.
Temptation is something that allures, excites and seduces me. It can be used in describing actions which indicate a lack of self-control. I am not good at resisting temptations. Being able to give in to temptation leaves me feelings dissatisfied, upset, or even guilty because I have done something I should not have. Smoking, is an act I used to illustrate the failure in resisting temptation.
Obama VS Pop Art
This is a pop art portrait of Barack Obama, the most talked about president in history. The man in the middle is stressed out, saying that he hopes the expectation from people will not drag him down, especially taking a country fighting two wars and facing financial meltdown. P.013
visual diary One of the most popular forms of visual thinking today is to maintain a visual dairy in a sketchbook. This is a process of capturing ideas as small drawings on a daily basis. Over time, you can create a library of small and simple ideas that can blossom into ambitious projects later. Visual diary is actually a great way to express my feelings and all I have encountered in life, with the use of all medium and formats, very freely. I believe that maintaining a sketch dairy will help you to become a more fluent thinker, better able to translate your ideas from fleeting mental impulses into visual form.
