100108: Artist’s Statement.Dragon’s Head

From my Sketchbook:

Dragon's Head“I am deeply fascinated by the human creativity in creating fiction and fantasy. Mythology and Legends are exemplary examples of the human creativity that had outlasted the erosion of time. However, these fantastic creatures and tales are gravely endangered by rapid modernisation and scientific eradication. Humans lose their gift of imagination slowly to maturity as they age, although somehow we are still fascinated by stories of mythical creatures and mysterious beings. There is an undeniable attraction within this conceived world that inspires us and allows us to detach ourselves from reality. I wish to encompass this magic into my artwork . I aim to create this fantasy through visual art, and spark the imaginative child in others.”
