Drawings by Tokie Lin

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Tokie Lin's drawings exhibit a critical and sardonic view of contemporary societal structures and attempts at reform, or as Lin seems to think, relative failures at these attempts. The work itself is dark and humorous in a way that seduces us and keeps interested with its inherent quirks and distortions.

Olivier Bonhomme Illustration

Illustration // Monday, April 16, 2012
Olivier Bonhomme's ‘Acid Jazz Essential’s series is composed of scenes of warped perspectives, wind-swept limbs, and groovy colours. Amongst the storm of high-energy ink and humorous inhabitants, we also find moments of stillness, where we can stop and appreciate Olivier’s talent as a well-practised drawer. We like the combination of one-directional and cross hatching in the more built up areas and depth of tones achieved...
