Exhibitions, Through the Eyes of Artists

Malibu Bluffs Open Space


Project Description

The sublime experience of a wild, open space where mountains meet the sea and humans harmonize with nature is captured in this intricate line drawing.

This artwork was commissioned for Metro’s Through the Eyes of Artists poster series for display in the fleet.



Artist Statement

“This drawing is my attempt at giving shape to the joy and wonder I felt while walking through the park. I wanted to capture the beauty of the particular harmony of experiences and existences I found there.Through the filter of my mind and the lines of my art, I tried to give shape to that moment and to share with viewers a piece of the truth that I experienced.”
