Monarchy Migration by Jaejoong Monarchy Migration by Jaejoong
media: Japanese watercolors and Sakura Micron pens

I painted this as my piece for #Cosmosys-Art's newest exhibition 'Resistance'.

My concept came from a friend who responded to my statement:
I bet Monarch butterflies never tire or worry on their migration journey, and I envy them~

He replied:
Envy the perseverance and faith of life, then, realize, we have the same potential.


And resistance to me can mean, never giving up, never giving in.

The flowers are plum blossoms and "most vividly represents the value of endurance, as life ultimately overcomes through the vicissitude of time. The fragrance of plum blossoms 'comes from the bitterness and coldness,' as the Chinese saying goes. Souls are tempered in the depth of experience, growing in inner strength and unyielding courage."
