Sailing seven seas

As most children, I used to love (and still do love…) to be in, on, under or near any kind of water – be it our bathtub or Balaton, my home country’s big lake. But – as Hungary doesn’t have seashore anymore – I was around 18 when I got to the sea for the first time in my life; so growing up, my relation to the sea was based only on books and films. I was fascinated by the ancient legends and tales connected to the oceans and its mythical creatures, the history of discovering the seas and continents of our planet, and all the stories and adventures about sailing on sea.  The ocean has always been a magical place for me where anything could happen, a place where there’ll always be territories and creatures unknown, a place that is somehow connected to other worlds existing only in our imagination.

This very personal relationship was the base when creating my series: most of the 12 images aren’t conventional seascapes. The title – Sailing seven seas – is a reference to the time when the waters of the known world were marked as seven main regions, and the Sea really was the big, dangerous and mystical Unknown…

Premium quality framed, acrylic and metal prints of this series are available in my print store.
