I have made this parody of the extremely famous "The Last Supper" of Da Vinci by injecting my own message into it. Living as a partially deaf person, I want to transform the constant frustration I feel in social occasions into entertainment. How hard it is to be heard and to hear in a group, when most of the time we do not take time to listen to what people are really trying to say! Needless to mention how our attention is constantly interrupted by all the devices! Quality conversation seems to be so rare nowadays. But instead of taking my frustration at face value, it is important for me to depict what is fun and absurd to entertain the viewer. I hope you enjoy looking at it and take some time to project your own meaning onto every character.
I had so much fun creating this whole piece that there's no word strong enough to describe it. Was it "deep," "profound," or "transcending?" Probably "transcending" because I didn't know I was capable of putting together a piece like this. And especially, I lost all notion of time while indulging in this work!
I do not see creativity as pure hard work. For me it is a whole package of various steps requiring different energies: brainstorming, challenging your own ideas, planning the execution, finding a way to execute your ideas, actually making it happen, reflecting on what you did, correcting if necessary, sharing, talking about it... and start a new project. My love for solitude and my hearing have made me a self-portrait worker to a huge extent. And I decided to embrace the entire process because I want to walk a happy and long-lasting creative path.
I hope all of you find your creative drive as well, be it artistic, managerial, culinary, athletic, etc. May you enjoy the creative part of your life like no one will be watching or judging.
