dreams-2Colossal always manages to deliver when it comes to reef art. I love it all. 29 (aka, my favorite number) year old Chinese sculptor Wang Ruilin put together this dreamy collection, appropriately titled “Dreams”. The animals are portrayed not necessarily as traditional animals, but vessels, somewhat like a version of Noah’s Ark but with animals and no people. Inspired by a painting of a horse by artist Xu Beihong around the age of four, Ruilin became obsessed with the powerful creatures and describes his pieces as “works that originally exist from various experiences.”. I’m in love with them, they make me want to shrink down and crawl through their lush mountains.

I'm a New York Reef Enthusiast and Fish Nerd, amateur photographer, dog lover, beer brewer/drinker, cocktail mixer, semi-seasoned chef, Prosecco Indulging, lightly foul-mouthed, slightly antagonistic, sorta-artistic, wordy bookworm of a girl. Dog mommy of three, an Abyssinian dubbed "Mau", plus one Dwarf Cuttlefish and a few Clarions. I have a tattoo of an Octopus with flowers on my rear. I ride my bike to the beach and sip bourbon with a good (reef) book while watching the waves. I like to think I'm witty and charming - but I'll let you decide.
