Drawing Ink on pencils on non-acetate drawing paper

The Russian Ballerina Galina Ulanova once said in an interview, what her dream would be; she stated that…

 

“If I can dance for one minute, perfectly, that is all I would ever ask.”

 

Inspired by the dancer Ulanova, Sharp created one of his most profitable works and one of his earliest finest creations. Created one evening without too much thought put into it, Sharp wanted to embody the passion and effort artists put into their craft, within this work. However, after the creation, it was packed away and was not seen for three years. Once it was re-discovered and posted on Sharps social media, prints had to be made to accommodate the work's demand.
