I am currently doing a series of NFT works of a surreal nature based on the combination of Symbolism, Legends, Masks and Mythology.
Intrigued by these subject matters and their origins is the inspiration for the painting series I am now working on.
The main image or focal point in the paintings are rendered as if they were stone sculptures or carvings. They are combined with natural elements found in nature such as seashells, floral elements, living creatures, etc., thus adding to the mystery of the paintings meaning through symbolism. Adding life like features such as realistic eyes to the sculptures are intended to enhance the surreal uncanniness of the piece. It produces in effect that the stone sculpture is alive.
Through a lot of experimentation I have developed a unique technique for these new works of art; whereby many layers of textured paint glazes are applied. It takes several days to achieve the desired background effect for the creation of these distinctive works.
New synergies are generated by intermingling both traditional and modern forms, leaving the viewer with a glimpse into the unknown imagination.
