The concept of this piece is about my grandma who passed away. I have never seen her but I imagin the new born as the reincarnation from my grandma.
I am always inspired by the relationship between Expressionism and Ukiyo-E Paintings. And the sacred atmosphere that I am trying to created is based on a ancient Chinese poem “Going deep into the mountain, knowing that there are tigers there,” which means going on undeterred by the dangers ahead. That sentence includes the elements of tiger and mountain.
For this composition I was inspired by the fiction "The Nine Billion Names of God" by Sir Arthur Charles Clarke. I imagined the lonely moment that there is a monk chanting on top of a mountain covered by snow. I tried to abstractize the snowy mountain and the buddha tower in Tibet to create the serenity atmosphere.
This illustration I am strongly inspired by the movie "The holy mountain". I reconstruct the three elements into this composition --- a monkey, a woman and a died dog.
I like the black and white film texture from the German film "Metropolis". So I am experimenting with only black and white colors in this piece.
The concept of "City" is the disconnection of human interaction, so I am trying to build it this sharp and weird feeling in the posters as well as the illustration. I developed this illustration from my previous poster called "City". I am also attempting to create multiple spaces in a 2D flat image with geometric shapes.
