    11TH OF NOVEMEBR 2012 | KAYWAZ HAS BEEN ON THIS PLANET FOR NEARLY 4 YEARS NOW WITHOUT TALKING TO ANYONE, SEEING ANYONE OR FEELING ANYONE. ALL HE HAS BEEN SEEING EVERY DAY ARE THESE 3 RED SUNS IN THE SKY. ENOUGH TIME TO THINK ABOUT HIMSELF AND THE MEANING OF HIS EXISTENCE. THE 1ST SUN STANDS FOR THE DAY WE ARE BORN. THE 3RD SUN STANDS FOR THE DAY WE DIE. AND THE 2ND SUN STANDS FOR THE DAY WE FIND OUT WHY WE ARE BORN. MOST PEOPLE HE ASSUMES WILL NEVER SEE OR THINK ABOUT THE 2ND SUN ALTHOUGH IT'S THE BIGGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT ONE. VERY FEW PEOPLE ACTUALLY LIVE WHILE THE MAJORITY JUST EXIST.

     

    BLUE WATER

    25TH OF MARCH 2013 | KAYWAZ HAS BEEN WALKING AROUND THIS GREEN PLANET FOR YEARS NOW. HE HAS NEVER HAD TO EAT OR DRINK ANYTHING BECAUSE OF THE INTENSIVE AIR ON THIS PLANET THAT GAVE HIM ALL THE NUTRITIONS HE NEEDED TO SURVIVE. AND BESIDES THAT, THERE WAS NOTHING ELSE THAN GRASS AND GOLDEN TREES ANYWAY.

     

    - UNTIL NOW. WATER. CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER. HE DISCOVERS AN ENTIRE OCEAN BEHIND ALL THESE TREES. HE RUNS. HE JUMPS. HE SCREAMS. WATER. HE APPRECIATES IT MORE THAN EVER. SOMETHING SO BEAUTIFUL LIKE PURE WATER. IT REMINDS HIM OF HIS DAYS WITH HIS OLD LOVE MINA, PLAYING AND KIDDING AROUND AT THE BEACH IN RIO. HE FEELS MORE ALIVE THAN EVER.

     

    GOLDEN ROCKET

    26TH OF MARCH 2013 | KAYWAZ HAS BEEN WORKING ON HIS SPACESHIP'S REPAIRS SINCE NEARLY THE FIRST DAY OF HIS ARRIVAL ON THIS PLANET. HE HAS BEEN USING THE WOOD OF THE GOLDEN TREES AS THE MAIN MATERIAL FOR MOST PARTS OF THE SPACESHIP. THE ONLY RESOURCE THAT WAS MISSING TO MAKE THIS BABY FLY AGAIN WAS FUEL. HE FOUND IT IN WATER, SOMETHING SO SIMPLE AND CLEAR THAT WE SOMETIMES FORGET ITS TRUE VALUE.

     

    SOUNDS

    No.11 // ART & MELODY SERIES 37 x 67 CM | GOLDEN SPRAY ON SNARE

     

    22ND OF FEBRUARY 2014 | KAYWAZ DID NOT MAKE IT TO MARS BUT HE TRAVELLED FAR ENOUGH TO FINALLY MEET HIMSELF WHICH LED HIM TO THREE MAJOR LEARNINGS:

     

    1. IT'S NOT THE DESTINATION THAT COUNTS, IT'S THE JOURNEY.

     

    2. GROW & GIVE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. "OUR LIVES ARE NOT OUR OWN. WE ARE BOUND TO OTHERS, PAST & PRESENT, AND BY EACH CRIME AND EVERY KINDNESS WE BIRTH OUR FUTURE." (CLOUD ATLAS).

     

    3. TIME IS LIMITED BUT OUR EXISTENCE IS ENDLESS. "N.E.R.D. - NOTHING EVER REALLY DIES." SO MAKE SURE IT'S WORTH LIVING FOREVER.

     

    NO FRAMES

    No.12 // ART & MELODY SERIES 30 x 90 CM | ACRYLIC PAINTING ON CANVAS

     

    LATER / WE GROW UP THINKING LIFE IS THE WAY IT IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE. WE FOLLOW INVISIBLE INSTRUCTIONS AND RULES MADE BY PARENTS, TEACHERS AND SOCIETY. WE SWIM OUR ENTIRE LIFE IN SWIMMING POOLS WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT. AND THEN FROM TIME TO TIME WE MEET THESE PEOPLE WHO SWIM IN THE OCEAN AND WONDER WHY THEY LOOK AND FEEL SO ALIVE AND TRY TO IGNORE THEM BECAUSE THEY DO THINGS OUTSIDE THE FRAMES. AND INSTEAD WE COMPARE OURSELVES WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY DEAD AT AGE 25 BUT WHO AREN'T BURIED UNTIL THEY ARE 75, AS BENJAMIN FRANKLIN ONCE SAID. TRYING TO FIND ALL ANSWERS IN BOOKS WRITTEN BY OTHERS WILL NOT HELP US TO UNDERSTAND THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK. OUR SELF.
