Thank you. I like to do a more experimental painting now and then. I wish to be more of a 'painter' than an 'illustrator'.

The paintings you've made which reflect that of a surrealism sci-fi look in them seem to be, in my opinion, your strongest points in your artwork. It gives your pieces a distinguished look in which you can almost call, in a base sense, "your style". Viewers can take this into a visual sense of you having your own style, and in so, making your surrealistic sci-fi artwork more appreciated. Keep at it. They are quite amazing along with the color compositions and contrast that you put into them.

By the way, happy birthday!

Thank you very much. I'm glad you like it. It was sort of a departure for me.

Reminds me of Escher... which I mean as a compliment, of course. Stunning piece, the color transition is inspiring, I kinda want to attempt something in this ball park.

Thanks. A fairly simple idea really. I wasn't thinking of Escher when I painted it but it is somewhat reminiscent of his work.

You're quite welcome :iconbowplz:

I'm not sure if I agree that transcendence is such a simple concept though

Thank you. The grid pattern is straight in the actual painting. I wasn't thinking of Escher when I painted it but now that I look at it, it is rather Escher-like.
