DAWN OF YOUTH
Watercolor, colored pencil, ink, on paper
Through this piece, I wanted to convey the emotions of both unity and separation I experienced while visiting my old classmates in Moscow last summer. After their graduation, we rented a cottage in the countryside to spend the last day of lightheartedness together. At night we climbed on a roof to play guitar, meet the sunrise and celebrate the letting go of your past, knowing that after the night everyone would start their independent life path yet would still hold each other' back no matter where they go.
Part of the "Belonging" series in which I explored the sense of belonging in the context of immigration and constant traveling.
