    Sorry, I do not understand the meaning of your creation, so I can not put a note for now ... What did you mean or show? Thank you in advance for your explanations.

    • WadePLUS

      No problem, I’m glad you asked :) The project might not resonant with you, part of this is personal preference.
      The project was done in a very short amount of time (28h in a 48h period), so it was “follow the flow” sort of project. However, I did have an idea that the guy was some sort of salesman (hence, the “Excuse me, have you…”). He could be an owner of a seafood restaurant where he is trying to attract you to dine. Could be a religious missionary from some fantasy religion or a blend of religions in the far future (hence several mixed cultures). I imagined the red symbol to be the thing he is representing and the background he is attached to to be the restaurant card or a pray card perhaps. The black symbols are made up from letters of a throw away sentence “Wisdom of the Koi, follow the flow”.

    I don’t think you have to explain your art. Especially when it is so original and so beautiful. Regards!

    • BranPLUS

      .I think on the contrary that it is always possible to ask for explanations, it allows to understand what an artist wants to express. I doubt, moreover, that you have fully understood the meaning of this realization before reading it…....

      Thank you Sergio! I am happy you like the project :D
      Sometimes I won’t answer because the project is too personal or I want people to find their own meaning and not be effected by my thoughts. Sometimes projects won’t click with people because of their background and personal experiences, or, I have failed to convey the message well enough. Sometimes, there is no message and I just do something for fun or something to be aesthetically pleasing. I am mostly happy people ask, because it tells me someone was engaged in the project and wants to know more. In this case, I am ok with sharing my thoughts :) This of course varies from person to person how much they would like to share. Again! I am really happy that you have enjoyed this project! Thank you :)
