Description Title: '5-Degrees Sky, v.10, Edit D'.Edit Date: 10 January 2018Copyright 2018 Nawfal Johnson All Rights Reserved.Series : OFF-WORLD ALIEN LANDSCAPES.Series Years: 2001 to 2018 (On-Going).'OFF WORLD - ALIEN LANDSCAPES.'[ 5-Degrees Sky, v.10, Edit D was Edited and Created in 2018. The original piece was designed in 2005. This version is more saturated than the original, but less than the 2008 Edit (Edit B). The colours are more natural in this edit. I have several of this art piece because individuals have varying tastes in colour preferences.]The Series :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. I was influenced by Science Fiction novels and TV shows to create this series.Purchase Fine Art Photography Prints of the OFF-WORLD ALIEN LANDSCAPES photographs at the following link:Tags:OFF-WORLD, ALIEN LANDSCAPES , other worldly, blue sky, clouds, green leaf, desert, no people, good, 5-degrees sky, Nawfal Johnson, outer space , cold, dry, hot,
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 (starting in 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.
I create and design fine art, abstract photographs of my own abstract expressionism paintings. I also design many of my abstract artworks from photographs I capture out in the urban environment as I walk around, investigating and photographing things I see in detail.
As an artist, I love working with alcohol-based permanent ink, acrylic paints, art pens, and watercolour pencils. However, my finished art pieces are usually photographs.
Art is a madness for me because I must be working on new artwork all the time — I must be doing artwork even IF I feel like hell, and IF I'm thinking my life is being pulled into a Black Hole. I must still be doing photography or working on one or more pen artworks, whether I am in a state of happiness, or in a state of despair. Art and Photography are an integral part of my life.
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. Depending on my mood, I draw a lot of inspiration from listening to music as I work. Presently, my favourite Classical music is from Vivaldi and Bach. If I'm not listening to Classical, I get energy from Very Heavy Metal groups, for example, Fallujah, Jinger, and Sylosis.
I was born in 1965, in Lincoln, Nebraska, and in 1994, I moved to Penang Island, Malaysia.
