“For me as an artist, my hope is to convey an emotion. The emotions of what my subject must be feeling at that moment. The question of, what has this person been though in their life. That, is my ultimate goal.”
Since Reian was a child, he has been drawing and painting. A proclaimed self-taught artist, he strives to discover new techniques but always returns to the old world and classical styles so relevant through the age of time. He in turn tries to capture the emotions and senses through his portraits. As he states,
"Art is an Emotion. Whether it is from the artist or the viewer, it is meant to give a message. We can each get our own different messages as well as our own different emotions. But it is a sense of depth in our perception towards relevance".
