“The illustration was created as part of an animated, lenticular triptych, which depicts a person’s life, from childhood to adulthood, as one moves through one’s life dreaming about traveling to faraway places. Even when one has traveled many miles the dreams and the destination remain the same. The image was drawn in graphite, then scanned and digitally painted to add color.” EKAH

“I painted this piece as part of an abstract series I call “game of colors. Even though there is a big oval shape in the foreground, my main idea relates to the small areas of red: they are a celebration of the small yet persistent forces within us which can conquer all of our obstacles.” Hua Nian
