Artist's description:

This work inspires me in a way that makes me think about stories by just looking at it. There is a isolated man in the middle of the canvas, featureless as if the artist, Aziz Anzabi wanted to just show that the aged man is not able to explain his perception or show it through his fine features. The artist has used a mix media style creating different effects e.g. the paint has flawlessly moved from a light brown to a darker shade creating a 3d effect on the cubes that support the man's body. What really catches my eyes though is the piece of paper clinging to the man's face, shielding his eyes and nose like someone is trying to keep the man away from seeing the world. The interesting fact is that the paper is crumbled as if it has no meaning and is not plain but has a little Iranian symbol of a decently dressed women reaching for the skies/ flying. The artist has added substantial amount of detail to the miniature lady. The venerable man has opened his mouth as if he is trying to complain but is helplessly slumped on the cube shaped objects for backing and is tightly holding on to one of them with his short fingers. But even though he seems like he is having a horrible experience he has slouched on his back and is very relaxed. You could tell that he is comfortable because he has folded over his two legs like it was very typical to have a paper covering half of his face. This painting penetrates your thoughts and makes you focus on the story of it or if it . The man is obviously aged due to his grizzled beard and his unkempt long hair that is black but heavily flecked with grey strands. He is quit bony at the arms and ribs but considerable muscular at the thigh. The background is quite dull and dark with creamy chocolate brown
