For the past few years, we have been developing a neo-naturalist mythology we call OCEAN. This new mythology is a cultural engineering tool and artwork with the goal and purpose to unify the world under an ecology of respect and synergetic love for everything that is living and beyond. The first in a new series of sculptural paintings, “The Illumination”, depicts a very important moment in the beginning of “The Great IP Wars”, a chapter in the book of OCEAN, that explores a dark time in the mythology. The work features Golden Eyes bear, the central figure in the composition, having a vision that he must make the ultimate sacrifice.
