The more interesting aspect is how the creativity of the artist position the human subject with other object or scenario.

Artist can also adding slight variation to the standard portrait and to cultivate personal style.

The creativity part is what type of additive elements to a standard portrait. Perhaps flying paper planes towards a red skirt girl with backlit hair?

Or a piece of real fabric?

The Russian artist Inna Tsukahina has a few artworks sharing some Asian elements. The abstractt rendition of the cherry blossom creates different feel to the painting.

For myself, I enjoyed the visual display of human creativity.

The Dreaming Woman Sings for the Dream by Lee Young-Shin

I truly enjoy this art expo more than  the trip to the local art museum (where camera is not allowed). About half of the exhibitors permit visitors to take picture of the artwork. Visitors are advised to pay attention to the ‘No Photo’ sign and at least seeking permission before taking pictures. Flash photography  is not advisable.
