The Gourmond by Aof Smith

“I create those imaginary and fascinating dreamlike scapes that overlay my experience of normal daily life. Only with a lot of curiosity and questioning about humanity’s morality, his cruelty, and the temptations that seduce him into obsession with the corporeal. I reflect the constant information of the news and media promoting materialism through the characters in my paintings.”
