ABOUT THIS ART PRINT
The City of Aqua city of water
Located in the middle of the sea in Iblard.
Sea Water is constantly being blessed and purified by the giant vase at the peak of the city.
Water in Iblard is said to be able to heal any sort of illness and extend life-span, but it will never promote immortality.
A personal project which has been ongoing since 2007.
Through exploring my own feelings and identity in this project. I am creating an imaginative space named “Iblard”, inspired by Japanese painter Naohisa Inoue’s painting. An imaginative space that everyone possessed and yet trying to running away from. A space about imagination and possibilities. As we are growing old, not just our bodies, but also our hearts are getting old. I aim to preserve our soul from being aged, at the same time, reminding people of their own childhood. “Iblard” is a sacred land where everyone can become a kid once again, to explore and experience the joy of being part of the world and possibilities are infinite.
