I was delighted to be involved in the first leg of One World Creative's "The Warriors of Xi'an Tour" on display at Belfast City Hall. They arranged for 50 replicas of the famed Terracotta Warriors to be shipped over from China and be painted by local artists. They are set to be displayed in different venues around Northern Ireland. I choose a tiger for my warrior. It's present in the Chinese zodiac and upon researching I found out that warriors who were particularly brave were referred to as a Tiger Warrior. (Oh wikipedia, you fount of knowledge!) I've been using contrasting hot and cool colours a lot recently in my work as with this piece.
