About the Book
A Tribute in art to the 29 men who departed this earth, as one, in November 2010 as a result of the Pike Mine explosions in New Zealand and ascended to continue their eternal soul journey.
Each of them in turn, inspired one, of the 29 series of soul paintings here but I have not identified which individual inspired which work because they are a Soul Group. Accordingly the entire body of artwork and commentary is to be taken as a totality representing the whole: The UNITY.
I am a writer, artist, business journalist, publisher and educator. I have juggled the esoteric with the mainstream throughout East and West for many years after starting out in New Zealand. "How About That" was created in response to a request for an artistic interpretation of the genesis of the 2008 Olympics in China. The resultant work was displayed via media art in a gallery in Beijing at the time. And presented at a convention in 2009 at Fengshan. Creativitiy and right brain thinking are my areas of research and interest. "Creativity for Life" is the product of working with some typical young students in Hong Kong who once encouraged to use their creativity proved how valuable they will be as leaders of the future.
