Drawing - Drawing
This is a hand drawing art work created back in 1983, using soft brush strokes with black Chinese ink.scanned at hi resolution and mounted digitally on canvas to enhance its appearance.
And the story behind this work depicts of a man stucked in a war zone trench extending his arms,he is kind of tree shape that is firmly connected to his root (the land) meanwhile he was seeking help to get alive from this deadly moment trapped in no-man's land battlefield, and there are these two bird one is feeding the man (giving hop) while the other is listening to his prayers & s.o.s. massages and try to deliver it for rescue him.
Surprisingly, that man happened to be me, and after hours of desperate, fear and hopelessness rescue team arrived and saved me, so I decided to show my survival experience and put it down on a piece of paper with this expressive simple artwork, that has so much meaning to me and every time I look at it, it brings all that memories of war & survivor images back to me.
Don't be hopeless, help will arrive in any moment!
