Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This artwork was inspired by my own tropical fish and it was such a pleasure creating this Koi sculpture.

The daily lives of these animals are so fascinating and it can keep you glued to them for ours.

Each day I learn something new creating these adorable sculptures.

I love the Koi fish as it is such a graceful fish and the patterns and colours of these animals are mesmerising.

This beautiful fish symbolize good fortune, success, prosperity, longevity, courage, ambition and perseverance no wonder they are called "living jewels" and "swimming flowers".

Koi fish are known for their ability to climb rushing streams and waterfalls until they reach their destination. They are determined fighters that do not give up.

Each of these Koi sculptures are hand made by me the artist and no 2 will look exactly the same.

This artwork is from my Koi fish collection.

Please note this artwork is unframed.

Thank you for looking at this artwork

Artist Profile

Born: 1973

Hometown: Calitzdorp

Based in: Calitzdorp

I am a paper artist that likes to experiment with all types of paper and crate unusual items that are mesmerising to look at and captures the imagination. My inspiration comes from life, love, nature, politics, news, and everything that surrounds me in life. Although my preferred medium is paper I also enjoy playing with paint creating paintings with bright colours and texture. I am living and working in beautiful South Africa. I am a quiet person that enjoys the company of myself. My work expresses things that are very obvious and recognizable to everyone but with a twist. The photographs in some of my work may not be pretty or even correct but the point of my work is to get a message across that is strong and undeniable sometimes. I use a combination of paper cutting and photography to create some of my artwork.
