The griffon is a legendary creature passed down from the ancient times, and it is considered a guardian of people’s homes and wealth.
The Guardian Griffon continues with the artist’s extended focus and fondness for mythical creatures. The artwork brings together the head of an eagle, body of a lion, tail of a phoenix, and wings of a Pegasus, combining together rich totems and symbols.
This mythical creature is a reconstruction derived from the artist’s inspirations and memories and is seemingly filled with many spontaneous elements; however, it is also created with precision resulting in an unique aesthetic experience and a cultural tradition that fuses together Eastern and Western components.
