Illustration by Jihyun Park.
This year Kingston University once more took out space at Tent London in order to showcase the work of just graduated MA students.
In the illustration section I loved work by Jihyun Park, a Tokyo and London based illustrator who daubs fantastical creatures in works in childish combinations of colours.
Zeun Han worked on the theme of The Ordinary Day, with the explanation that Daddy bellows Blue but Mommy yells YELLOW! I particularly loved the beautiful way that business cards and visitor book were displayed.
Hong Kong based illustrator Jacky Tong stood out for great ideas that provocatively explored themes of sustainability and animal rights. I particularly loved the monkeys eating a human brain, printed on to a mirror so that the viewer could cleverly project themselves into the scene.
Finally, I can find no trace of Chen Bin Wu on the internet, but I liked these 3D paper artworks, inspired by depictions of dragons in different cultures.
