Koinobori

An A1 mixed media piece based on a the idea of metamorphosis, and a Japanese legend of a koi carp transforming into a dragon. This legend is meant to represent the transition into manhood, so i wanted to merge both the analogy and what it symbolised together. I used acrylic (rollers and brush) watercolour, and biro and drew from a picture of my brother.
