About the artwork “Beautiful Mind”
“Beautiful mind” The guy with a beard and masculine look but if we look deeply inside, we can see a beautiful mind within. A mind that’s full of colorful flowers that can be interpreted to be gentle, soft, and sweet of the guy. The artist wanted to represent that everything does not always have to be like what you see or imagine.
The artist wanted to play with the symbol of gender “a man, the beard ” which represents the masculine symbol, contrast with the feminine gender “soft and colorful flowers”
