A Note From The Artist:

I called this piece Cetacean because the architecture resembles the spine of a large animal - a whale. Cetacean is a collective term used to describe a group of aquatic mammals such as dolphins and whales. The building itself is the Museu de les Ciències Príncep Felip or the Prince Philip Science Museum in Valencia. It forms part of the City of Arts and Sciences designed by architect Calatrava.

The shallow lake at the front of the museum creates an almost perfect reflection of this remarkable structure when the weather is calm. As I gaze at the museum and its reflection, I couldn't help but succumb to staring at the repetitive odd-shaped pattern, feeling a sense of calm and well-being that eventually sends my mind into a drift. Whilst feeling mentally relaxed, my eyes wander through the fractal back and forth as if I was lost in a visual maze.

About Yaopey:

Born in Malaysia, I was bitten by the travel bug at a young age. My interest in exploring off the beaten tracks has led me to places such as Tibet, Iran, and Pakistan. While it’s nice to see new places, I have enjoyed the cultural experience of traveling more. I would bring home a piece of local culture from every place I visit, mainly in the form of wall art. 

Maybe you have been to places I have photographed, or seen them elsewhere. I hope, through my work, I can bring a piece of memory or add an artistic touch to your living space.
