Bifrost Bifrost


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 




 
In Norse mythology, Bifröst is a burning rainbow bridge that reaches between Midgard (the world) and Asgard, the realm of the gods. 
There is no border among each colours in rainbow. Therefore, it makes reference to “diversity” or “symbiosis”.
I have wanted to paint a rainbow since a very long time. However, it was a kind of difficult challenge for me to paint such a symbolic theme. Several years ago, I have visited at Bretagne region in north France. I saw two rainbows turned over clearly there. It was simply an amazing sight which I have never seen before. Then I got back to my atelier, I took a brush to paint this unusual view. I named this series “Bifröst”.
