Chinese characters from left to right: Opposition/Mistake, Fire, Tree, Paintbrush. The small symbol on the bottom right is my signature which means Panda.
I chose these characters as a symbolic representation of the artist's struggle. Opposition represents the fight we endure with our art and ourselves. Fire represents the passion that drives us and keeps us motivated. The Tree represents our growth in skill and confidence. And the Paintbrush represents the finished product, the culmination of our creativity and hard work. This item is perfect for painters, writers, sculptors, photographers, designers - artists from all walks of life.
