S H I A N : :
Hello! Welcome to Shian! My name is Joanne, and this page will provide you with more information on who I am and a little bit about this place.
- This is my 3rd blog, after my first at thespoke.com and second via msn spaces. Fourth if you include Deviantart’s journals. WordPress has become the 4th/5th reincarnation under the name Shian.
- This blog would be categorized as a ‘personal blog’ for the reasons and purposes of personal reflection, keeping people up to date about I’m up to, and a vehicle for the dissemination of my own thoughts and ideologies for readers to enjoy.
- I am a Fine Arts major at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, currently studying Graphic Design.
- My paintings explore themes of binary differences such as rationality vs spontaneity, abstraction and representation and fact vs fiction; suggesting that reality is a shifting state. My paintings embrace such a reality and suggest what is seen, is not only the work of a piece, but the viewer as well.
- I am an artist, writer, dreamer, music enthusiast, philosopher, truth seeker, home organizer, subscriber to faith, poet, and a work in progress.
- I’m a big fan of a band called Nightmare/Naitomea/ ナイトメア. Not via their opening and ending songs for the anime Death Note, but rather I got to know them through Asian mp3 rotation sites.
- Shian, or Cyan is one of Nightmare’s songs off their Libido album.
