Raw matte black canvas is exploded by colour in this one off original and symbolic work of art. The Legendary Koi fish are famous as a decorative indoor or outdoor feature, much similar to the painting. The Koi Fish meaning in Japan is good fortune or luck they also are associated with perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose, the Koi fish symbolize good luck, abundance and perseverance.
The Koi can be hung and displayed in universal directions. The symbolism of the Koi swimming upstream is a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and travel upstream. It symbolizes lessons and/or trials that a person may encounter in life, and confronting or overcoming them.
The Koi fish swimming downstream don't yet possess the strength to make it against the obstacles; or haven't achieved their ultimate goals.
A clever colour pixel glitch gradient is used as a transparent background while the bold outline of the scales protrudes through! The shades of blue lead to a strong and masculine meaning adversely coupled with the vibrant pinks which resemble opportunity and success.
The solid colour triangle shapes add a subtle shimmer to the shiny and streamline side of the fish.
The piece has been officially shown internationally for one exhibition at the Tokyo International Art Fair in 2017. Not for sale previously by the artist, the buyer now gets a chance to add an original travelled artwork to their home or commercial space.
The Koi comes rolled in a tube and ready to be professionally stretched to become an immediate statement piece.
