Awesomeness Portraits

Imagination is the future. I believe that everyone has power. We can all make a difference if we practice our imagination. 

In society, we are labelled as genders, races, ages, professions and are defined by our history, but these labels cannot define who we truly are. Our present selves have no limitation. We are agents of our own identity; our subject surpasses our object. I hope to help people find their true character and become who they are as an independent being through my paintings.

In my portraits, I use colours to represent the energy I feel on them. Those colours don’t belong to their external appearance. People in my portraits can have blue or green colour skin. Green means curiosity and growth. Blue means intelligence and calmness. Those colours represent what is inside of them, such as what they feel and how they think. I often paint outgoing people with their hair pointing upwards; introverts’ hair slide closer to their head.

Spirit animal shows the inner drives of people. The spirit animal can guide them to the place they should go, and to move forward in their life. It can also represent the strength and weakness of the person. For example, the giraffe is tall and happy. It can see things far away but it may get trapped by things right in front.
