Cold Fusion: The Only Star

DSC_9494

Moments have the power to redefine you, make you complete, change you for good. My one defining moment was when I first laid eyes on this girl, who is now my wife; I instinctively knew I’d never be the same person I was before I met her. My world revolves around her; she’s my rock, my soul-mate, my friend, my enemy, my everything, and I cannot imagine a life without her.

We celebrate our anniversary in October each year and every year, I do something special for her. The last year, however, was a different story as we were mainly focused on our new born son’s recovery. Nevertheless, I had something special planned since then and I just finished the whole thing. It comprises of a poem framed for her and a hand-crafted 3D paper model that ties in with the main theme of the poem. It may not be the most expensive gift but it certainly is original and straight from the heart. I can’t wait to see her reaction when I show it to her in the evening. Here are a few photos for your viewing pleasure.

Break Free

Break Free

I’m free no more
Society defines me
Enslaved by my thoughts
I yearn to be free

Cold Fusion: Into the Light

By now, you must have gotten the hang of Cold Fusion. Here’s the third installment in this series:

Into the Light
It may be dark but tread along
Into the spiral we call life
Let hope illuminate your heart
Keep searching for that light
Night surely ends, the sun doth rise
Thy future shall be bright! 

Cold Fusion: Mission Earth

This here is the next installment in the Cold Fusion series. I call this ‘Mission: Earth’. Enough said, I’ll let the photo and the poem speak for themselves:

Mission: Earth
Our skin tones might be miles apart
But it’s only red we bleed
Hand in hand, O! my brethren
We’ll spread the word of peace
Plant trees, recycle, save the earth
Let’s atone for our past misdeeds! 

Cold Fusion: Anyone’s Game

Dear Readers,

This is a new initiative I’ve started working on. With every new artwork/sculpture I make, I shall be adding a stanza of poetry to describe the piece. Let’s hope you can all appreciate my sentiments. This right here is the first in a series of many Cold Fusions to come.

I have recently completed three installations that are competing for a commission with one of the biggest names in the Airline industry. The competition is tough, but hope prevails. Here goes nothing:

Anyone’s Game

Anyone’s Game
Life might be like a game of chess
But I’m done being black and white
Let’s take control, reach for the stars
And live larger than life!

Hope you like it!

Cheers,
Yousuf
