Art - use it to boost creativity

Water temple, an artwork by Song Dong
Inspired by his dad's tip to improve the calligraphical skills and at the same time to save paper and ink Song Dong, an artist based at Beijing has started painting on glass with water using a brush and it formed the basis of this masterpiece at the Aspinwall House, the main venue of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2018. We can enter inside this glass enclosure and create our own masterpieces as well, just paint using water and brushes kept there. So use this space to tweak your artistic skills, let your creativity develop!


A good creative pursuit!

Another one, also good!
The above ones were created by some of the people while I visited there. The canvas clears by itself naturally for the ones that come afterward. What a beautiful idea, brilliant!

Artist's profile and what this is all about
This artist has gifted this edition of Biennale a beautiful art which is located at the sprawling compound of the Aspinwall House gelling well with the natural surroundings. Such works provide an interactive platform for the visitors which undoubtedly make them more involved with the creative pieces of art. 


My attempt :)
The above one was made by myself. I leave the interpretation to you😊

Philosophically speaking, all of us are visiting this planet for our destined period. The vast canvas is kept clean by the universe, that is its rule, its duty. We are free to draw whatever we like, paint it and decorate it. It is all up to us how we do it! Once our time here ends, the same canvas will be wiped clean, the next ones in the line step in, and will begin their turn in front of it. Now it is all their world, their life, they can do whatever they like to do with it. How they make use of their time here is only what that matters! Metaphorically, if something needs to last a little longer or we wish to make it last more, paint it frequently, add water little by little, and this reminds us the need to give more attention to such matters of importance. If not, the picture dries up quickly making the canvas blank. Care, attention, and putting our heart into whatever is our passion are some of the important things to be successful.

A great work, indeed! Thank you so much, Song😊
