This piece is inspired by the Birth of Venus. It is a monumental story in the artist’s life as he perceives its message to be a reminder when he is coping with anxiety and depression. Although some things in life may seem to be going negatively, there is always a blessing in disguise. Venus is the blessing that was birthed by a tragic event. Similar to the story, Rei perceives negative emotions as roots that are needed in order for the branches of happiness to flourish.
