UNICORN MURAL

[THE BALANCE]⁣
Second latest mural located at an office space. The original theme was ‘unicorn’, however the client would want to have my twist of the creature. The overall look and feel of the creatures took inspiration from the lion paintings by Katsushika Hokusai, often known simply as Hokusai, a legendary japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. I have always been a huge admirer of his work. The perfect balance between power and gentleness. Often the creatures I create are detail- oriented, this mural provided a great opportunity for me to experiment on minimising details while still maintaining overall aesthetic. I kind of treated this project as my tribute to the Japanese master artist. The journey of learning and experimenting has been fruitful. I am still shaping my visual language and my mind is constantly evolving after seeing all the wonderful artworks created by amazing artists around the world. The world of art is vast and limitless. ⁣

In this mural, I am trying to capture “BALANCE”. I am fascinated by the idea of balance, and how we are constantly struggling to deal with our work, our lives, our relationship and many more. How to maintain that inner balance and make peace with ourselves. Accepting who we are, what we did and where we go and what we have become. ⁣

I consider myself as a rather rebellious person. I am constantly trying to present things my way, while absorbing elements from other artists, whether experienced or not. There will always be something out there for me to learn and evolve. There are moments in life where we need to compromise and how we can stay on our chosen path requires determination, discipline and resilience. To those who are determined, disciplined and resilient, this is how I show respect to you all. ⁣

Staying humble is something I am constantly reminding myself of. I’m starting to do things which I used to love again, just a little better everyday. I’m starting to like myself again. That’s the goal.⁣
