Contrast and color. These are the basic principles of pop art. But this is also the main set of characteristics that captures a persons eye. This piece was inspired by an experimental idea.

Birds have always caught my attention for their free way of life. They are able to fly and sore above the world that we are bound to. This sense of freedom is something that I am truly envious of.
