Such a happy artwork! "Happy II", 35x35cm, mixed media on a wooden tray with frame effect. The original painting looks even more vibrant in person as I used metallic and neon colors. Inspired by prayer, Chinese calligraphy and graffiti art, this small painting is rich in texture and details.
It is a small but luminous work to spread joy every day! It is aesthetic and contemporary, ready to hang on the wall!
