Graffiti on an Alien World, v.7, Edit C, is the standalone antithesis of the Alien Water series. I wanted there to be a shocking example in the Alien Water Series of a 'Water-Poor' planet.
The huge stone wall stands as a tribute to many alien species that have visited this planet. These alien visitors have used their Art, as the universal language (in my humble opinion), to leave their message behind for others to find. Some of the graffiti is complicated and other samples are simple and child-like. Some have left print marks behind, perhaps as signs of their particular species. Others have left detailed astronomical maps showing planet locations, maybe giving others a clue to their home world location. The Earthlings who visited this world, have left what appears to be a flag painting, with the simple, and perhaps arrogant statement, that Earth Rocks! All of the beings who have visited this planet may be different; however, one thing they have in common is that they didn't find any water on this burnt up planet. This planet should have served as a warning to all these beings, what happens when destruction of the environment occurs.
Nawfal Johnson Nur, Malaysia Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement IMAGEKIND: ARTIST BIO — Nawfal Johnson — Smokephotographist 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.
