ORIGINAL ARTWORK

Art making is a process of documentation. Within the framework, it references something outside itself. There is a story, an emotion or an experience behind each piece of work. Understanding the creative process is essential to understanding the work.

Current

Current

When the energy runs through you like current in the ocean, that empowerment is like nothing can stop you now. May your creativity run inside you pushing you seeing your real focus so you know what you need to do most. Blessings to you all.

Imagine

Imagine

When I was finishing this artwork, I look at it and feel some kind of peace within. It's slightly cute, it's abstract, it's a bit quirky and not pretty, it has fine details and bold in colors. My thought is imagine we all live in harmony where differences would be observed, respect and celebrated. There would be surprises at times, but we still can find that share of peace living individually yet togetherness is possible. Naive and real is my spirit. Imagine.

Connectivity

Migration

Migration

This appears to be a boat that sails you to a serene place. When you raise your head, the glittering moon and the blazing sun is present at the same time. You won't feel lonely, you won't feel scared, you won't feel pressured. There is no rush. This is a time and space where you want to migrate, and forget all things that are suffocating you. Welcome to my world.

Detour

Detour

We all can choose to detour your life at one point if you deliberately gather your strength, courage and perseverance. How strong the effect you can turn depends on the multitude of the above mentioned factors. Do you turn or stay, stay flat?

Balance

Splatter

Splatter

We bounce around the universe meeting different people, places and experience in each and every unpredictable way. It appears to be random, but I truly believe everything happens for a reason.

Stay Wise

Stay Wise

How many times have you told yourself you wish you have done something, or not do something. I can only say: take it slow, listen to your heart, be nice to yourself, and those around you. You only get to be wise that way.

Drop

Drop

Don't drop the ball! It's okay, even if you do. Making mistakes is the only way to help us not to make that same mistake again. Chin up, smile.

Thrust

Thrust

Behind this one stroke, it's a lot of thoughts, ideas, expectations, experiences and failures. This one thrust is made of a lot of feelings and may appear simplistic. Don't judge.

Vision

Vision

Without darkness, there is no light. Some days appear tougher than the other, and some days may be more enjoyable. Inhale, and it's another day. Don't let darkness eat you up.

Spring

Spring

Limpid

Limpid

Limpid means marked by transparency: pellucid limpid streams. It's clear and simple in style limpid prose. It stands for being absolutely serene and untroubled. How I want this to be your state of feeling when looking at my drawing.

Appreciate

Appreciate

Life should be a circle which runs on incessantly with gratitude and appreciation. This brings on good karma and luck. Namaste.

Love Meta

Love Meta

Love is the very original form of emotions we all have deeply rooted inside us. It's just a matter of how you express it, and you are so good at it, trust me. So don't let this super natural born ability be gone un-noticed. Tell him/her you love him/her. Do it now.

Sand, sun and stream

Sand, sun and stream

We cannot go on holiday seeing sun, beach and sand all the time. So I hope this landscape can bring you something equally pleasing to look at.

Core

Core

Stay firm in training your core. Your core keeps your balance and keeps your feet fixed on the ground so you don't get affected so easily by external factors, pressure and simply 'noise'. Stand firm.

Shore

Shore

Everything has a dividing line. But if that line is not as rigid but fluid, your life could be a bit more agile and adaptive? Be water, my friend.

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

Joy is what I want to communicate here. May you bud, bloom and blossom with the flower of life. Let the seed of hope, patience and love bring you the taste of life no matter where life is leading you. Create your own blossom that no one can take away.

Shore

Shore

Beneath the dirty ground, a lot of times are sources of gold which is awaiting your discovery. But have you ever spent a second to understand where you are standing? Don't get distracted by trivial things but spend the time to know where you are, and where you are going.

Mountain Hills

Bloom

Cosmic Blossoms

Cosmic Blossoms

If you want to see some bursting energy blossoming - you've got to reach out and interact with different people of different backgrounds and brought-up. Otherwise, things turn stale and become predictable.

Face Lift

Morphing

Morphing

We morph from one state to another slowly and gradually. Spend some time with yourself alone: retreat, review, restart and reNEW. Observe the stages and make something good out of it. Wake up, get up and show up.

Pile

Pile

Rising

Rising

Let your passion flame and ignite the curiosity within. It has nothing to do with age, gender, race, career or any other personal status. Let enthusiasm race and rise.

Faith

Faith

Faith can move mountains. Mustard seeds can grow into trees. It's a matter of time. Be patient.

Boundary

Boundary

Draw the line. But life is not as easy to draw the line when it involves zillions people, units, matters. So the line gets a bit fluffy.

Milky Way

Milky Way

This universe is massive and each one of us is just a minute part of it, we are not even a dot on this drawing in real life. So relax, as life is going to pass by in a wink.

Patience

Patience

Good things are worth the wait. Nature is one biggest school to train our patience and EQ. You cannot rush a plant to grow, you cannot force a flower to stay forever, you cannot fight mother nature. Enjoy every moment as every moment is history in a sec.

Mass

Mass

Resistance

Resistance

The more resistance you go through, the stronger you become. Because you don't grow if you are comfortable. Persist and persevere.

Content

Content

Stay content and be grateful of what life brings you. Look at what you have and not what you don't. This is not a pessimistic way of looking at things in general, but it helps you stay appreciative of how things go.

Botany

Botany

How interesting to see the nature and these green in black and white, light and dark perspective only.

Leaf of Life

Joy

Joy

Joy is different from happiness. It's very abstract but joy is something very calm, smooth, pure within and very spiritual. I wish you all having the feeling of joy running through you like a river that rushes into the ocean, it's never-ending and continuous.

Genuine

Genuine

Be genuine to yourself and everyone you come across. Smile like you really mean it. It's totally important you only give your true self to everyone. Only in this way, you will be proud of yourself when you look back. Be just, fair and genuine.

Streams

Streams

These are streams of energy and vibes gushing through me when I feel inspired and I hope my drawings will bring you energetic movement inside you.

Growth

Growth

"When you forgive, you heal. When you let go, you grow." To truly grow more mature, better and wiser, we have to let go of what happened in the past, but just learn a lesson to not committing the same mistake. But that should not stop you from being daring or adventurous.

Tranquility

Tranquility

Lotus is one of the most loved flower - it brings on peace, quietness and elegance. They take on a spiritual meaning of ascension, enlightenment, or rebirth.

Stance

Stance

It's not easy to stay truthful and firm to what you believe, as we all get influenced and affected one way or another by society, peers, what the big trend is doing. You got to build your confidence, guts, instincts when you want your stance to stand firm.

Heart Broken

Heart Broken

I do not always draw something with sadder thoughts and feelings. This somehow gets me when I draw. Death and departure is what can bring me or a lot of us down. Both D does not have to be physical, it could mean an end to a relationship, energy, emotions, but don't let this feeling hang around too long. They just teach us how we need to embrace birth of new feelings again.

Gratitude

Gratitude

Connections

Connections

The two circles here are connected and disconnected. Life always gives by taking things or people away from you. It's like staying connected by disconnecting.
