INNER SENSE - WALLS IN VIETNAM
My second wall
I came by the 5KU station, which was more a restaurant only.
I spent time in HCMC looking and scouting for available wall spaces in cafes, restaurant, community houses, hostels and it was an activity, which lasted throughout the rest of my journey to Hanoi.
I talked to the crew, came in contact with the manager, showed him my previous work as in SANS, or and works from Helsingborg. I was appointed to a wall, ready to be decorated the following day.
5KU had a buzzing vibe: beer-drinking small groups of expats and locals, huge wooden tables, wet by drops of soup and vegetables, but had wall space.
Had some leftover colours from the last painting, but added some colours in colour scheme and then some lovely white to blast out areas and enhancements. The theme was along the similar lines, but this time the day of the painting was actually on the same day as the celebration of the aspect of Shri Ganesha, which is a symbol of innocence, so I chose to write the word SENSE as in Inner sense (or innocence)
The theme was along the similar lines as the first painting I did in Ho Chi Minh City, but this time the day of the painting was actually on the same day as celebration of the aspect of Shri Ganesha, which is a symbol of innocence, so I chose to write the word SENSE as in Inner sense (or innocence).
if you want to learn more of the qualities of Shri Ganesha, and perhaps are in need of free, effortless meditation practice, then go visit this page for learning the practice in a collective (worldwide centres)
Started out sketching up the letters and adding colours in a few areas to map the first layers and started doing a few effects. Having already painted a piece earlier in HCMC and kinda knew how I would approach the wall and the letters, made it a swift 5hrs and 30 mins. process.
My attempt was to tie the painting together in colour and “feeling” as the place, a bit rugged, worn out, but shining bright in the cityscape, and I really think that it suited the crowd quite well.
