This work was heavily inspired by the Belgium Surrealist painter René Magritte. The painting Shiné pronounced (Shin- knee) refers to how sometimes in everyday life we can forget to relax and we take life a little too seriously, as perhaps things are never as permanent as they seem.

The relaxing view of the sky and the clouds through the brick wall may seem to suggest this as the brick wall surrounding the sky is a permanent fixture.

The graffiti art on the wall surrounding the cracked brick wall, is symbolic of birth (young child at the top) old age (old Nepali guy to the right) and death ( the two skulls kissing at the bottom), the three main phases in life.
