Artist of the Day / Eden Some

These paintings are just amazing, and mesmerizing!  Eden has two shops on Etsy.  The second one features his work in color, but I personally prefer these in Black and White.

  Eden:  A paradise and deserted garden where Adam and Eve won’t turn around and go back to there. God placed cherubim with an omnidirectional “flaming sword” to guard against any future entrance into the garden.

Somé:  A Mossi surname, also it’s the name of a town located in Burkina Faso. It has population about 3,000 people. The Mossi people is the largest ethnic in Burkina Faso, The Mossi speak Morre Language.

Eden Some:  A Chinese without chinese name. A Flâneur in the world.

I had to look it up!  The term flâneur comes from the French masculine noun flâneur—which has the basic meanings of “stroller”, “lounger”, “saunterer”, “loafer”—  For much more, see:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fl%C3%A2neur

DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...
