Five  of  Swords

by Dean

Card Meaning

Artist's Bio


Continuing on with the Art deco theme my next card is the Five of Swords, as before i have used the same techniques to create something from the Art deco period, again by using geometric lines and patterns with dark and bright coloured tones


At the Top of my card shows Five conflicting eyes looking down at the human figure below. The Five swords have been used to course injury towards the figure on the ground, which has now wounded and disabled any thoughts and actions to gain victory for the Spectators above. The swords attack from the moliveont eyes seem to give them a great feeling of power and control, over the figure's inability to fight against the surrounding weapons, this fear of being defeated must now be over powered so that control can be used to fight back.

Card Meaning

The number five elements in Tarot have a war like theme, usually a time for fighting a battle that can sometimes end with a painful and bitter loss. The meaning of my Five of swords comes from the inability of dealing with negative thoughts and feeling's of being defeated. This fight has either come from the hands of spiteful and hurtful intentions towards you, or by your own negative response to a situation that can be difficult to struggle with, yet this battle must be fought.  

Artistic Media

Used a plain sheet of A4 paper then sketched geometric lines and patterns with black felt pen to achieve a Art deco feel. Colour was added by using bright coloured oil paints, then blended each colour with dark and colourful contrasts.

Artist's Bio

Dean likes to draw and paint in his spare time, and is currently creating his own Art deco Tarot deck which he enjoys doing. He hopes that the creative development of his deck will be published one day.
