Artist Statement

With the knowledge of Michaelangelo’s David has been the symbol of body perfection and the name Big Apple is New York’s nickname – that deemed as one of the most important economic centers of the world, the work portrays one’s obsession to be the most perfect of them all. As the white horse body joins the zebra’s, a good person could be as bad, as they might go deeper in the infinite of darkness – portraying mankind’s deepest obsession.

Artist Statement

Michaelangelo’s Creation of Adam tells of mankind’s birth to the world, what should be a kind loving story to the human. However, addictions might come to pursue big dreams, obsessing their dreams. Thus, referring to the previous Big Apple painting, humans can be the Big Apple Addict.

Artist Statement

Botticelli’s Birth of Venus shows the birth of beauty in mankind’s history. Yet, by science and knowledge, the planet Mercury is nearer to the Sun, and the element Mercury is one of the elements that are high in acid. ‘

Birth of Mercurius’ offers a different perspective that Mercury could be a hotter-knowledge-symbol for mankind.
