Something so straightforward and uncomplicated such as this ‘Watch Your Move’ painting is positively packed with aesthetic value. Viewers can see the explorations of colours, contours, crevices and shapes that are fluid, interspersed with each other and visually appealing. It is a vibrant, serene admiration as well as the artist’s insight and knowledge of his subject. With the assumption that it’s painted as an ode to the Year of the Tiger, this work illustrates a tiger in all its glory, meticulous, its layered with stripes of black, true to the animal itself and almost 3d like.
