Polar Bear Abstract by Nakomii Polar Bear Abstract by Nakomii
this is my art i created. Its a polar bear in a blizzard.

I just finished it maybe..30 minutes ago.
This piece took about 3600 hours and i used 4 different mediums on this. I believe the use of many mediums helps create multiple illusions. First, i had to lightly brush on each color and layer it perfectly. This process i re-did about 14 times. Next i had to add depth and darker colors to add emotion to this piece. Then the lighting and detailing came in, and i used about 6 different brushes for that, to add the perfect texture. I used 40 shades of white for this, each coming from a different part of the world. The paint was made by hand in my uncles shop in Italy, where the finest paint is made. Some of these shades are impossible to re-create again. One shade of white came from polar bear fur, using a very complicated process that takes approx. 109 years. Another shade came from the bone powder of a giant panda. The bones had to be hand-shredded with sandpaper, using about 78 different types to get it the perfect texture. The brushes i used are one of a kind, using the hair from Michael Jacksons legs to create the finest brush strokes. The wood came from the rare rainbow eucalyptus, and the hairs are held in place with Platinum. I added a large signature to personalize it, to show how involved i was with this, and how much of it IS me.

I believe the inspiration for this piece came to me from my years of working in an envelope factory. I believe we can all relate to this, which is why it was created. Its a universal symbol, and it speaks to the world, to the soul. I hope it speaks to yours as it did to mine.


I It was done on a 40 x 30 canvas. Which was made in China, and purchased at Wal Mart. Site to Store pickup due to its large size.

This piece is dedicated to my loving and supportive wife, *galianogangster, who has been with me for 88 perfect years. Without her, this piece would be..
nothing.
