Description 'OFF WORLD - ALIEN LANDSCAPES.'[ 5-Degrees Sky, v.10, Edit B was Edited and Created in 2008. ]This is a mixed-media art series that began in 2001, and continues to the present...and I suspect will be one of the few photography series that I never put the proverbial, 'THE END'. These are images that could exist on some alien world. These are landscapes and seascapes. These images include photography, painting, drawing, miniature sculpture, and computer digital art. This is my only art series that composes so many art media elements.
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.
