Description Title: 'Eighteen, No. 3, Edit B.'Creation Year / Mon / Day: 2014 / 01 / 20.Series: EIGHTEEN.Series Year: 2014.Style: Abstract Expressionism Photography.Note: The initial photographs for this fine art series, were designed on January 18, 2014; thus, I have decided that 'Eighteen' would be the name of this series, and the titles of each photographic artwork in this series. Each artwork may have been created after 18 January. The 'EIGHTEEN' series all initially came from photographs of my abstract expressionism, acrylic, paintings. The paintings in my art photographs are never the end of the work: The paintings are only a means to an end. The 'end' is always the finished abstract art photograph. In many cases, the painting does not survive.
Nawfal Johnson Nur, Penang, Malaysia Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement IMAGEKIND: ARTIST BIO — Nawfal Johnson Nur — My Photographist Beginnings: When I pick up my camera ... when I compose the subjects in the frame ... and, when I plan and set up my lighting, I have one thing in mind — To take a better photograph than the last time.
I have been using a camera as a hobbyist since I was 12 years old, and then as a freelance professional since 1998.
Photography is a Madness for Me — My Work: I have been a long-time Freelance Stage & Dance Photographer; nevertheless, I focus much of my energy designing fine art Abstract, and, Abstract Expressionism Photography. I also design SMOKE-ART PHOTOGRAPHY, and that is the art style I focused on in my 2011 book, titled, ETHEREAL DREAMS and HOPE.
My Artistic Influences: My main artistic influences are Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. As for photographic influences, I have always drawn inspiration from Carl Fischer, and Andreas Feininger.
