Yayoi Kusama

I’m here but nothing

Yayoi Kusama began hallucinating spots atop the surfaces of her world at a young age. In these polka dots, at once simple and boundless, Kusama found a way to break from the self and look into infinity.

Neo 1984,Cover for “Dark Fairytales” by TinHong

Victo Ngai

I am so happy I got to work on my first Chinese book cover with Hong Kong/Taiwan/Mainland China best-seller TinHong.

TinHong’s latest book, “Dark Fairytales” (Non orthodox translation of 黑童話集), is a compilation of 16 novelettes set in a fictional metropolitan called “H town”. The stories are based on real stories in Hong Kong, structured after Chinese and Western classics such as “1984” by George Orwell, “The Last Class” by Alphonse Daudet, A Poor Man’s Tale of a Patent’ by Charles Dickens, ‘差不多先生傳“by胡適.etc. These parodies poke fun and reflect on the society’s current maladies, corruptions and injustice in a sarcastic and darkly-humorous way. 

For the cover, TinHong asked me to freely follow my inspiration. This was awesome and quite rare for book cover jobs. So I decided to make a piece about “H-Town” in a neo”1984”way.

Big thanks to TinHong for being an A+ author, art director, publisher and the ultra-delicious care-package!

Artist of the DayLouiz Kirkebjerg Nielsen

Danish born Louiz Kirkebjerg Nielsen lives and works in London. She completed her BA in Fine Art at Middlesex University in 1996 and her Masters in Printmaking at Camberwell College of Art in 1997.

In 2000 she won the KPMG Art Award Sculpture Commission. She had her first exhibition in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1988 and has since then exhibited her work in England, Wales, Germany, Iceland, Portugal, USA and China. 

In her new series of paper-cut screenprints, Louiz explores the theme of journeying into imaginary places, where the impossible is possible and only the sky is the limit. These cityscapes are constructed using photographs of London buildings, trees and landmarks, each pointing to the sky.

The in-between places on the white paper are hand-cut to create a web of paths where tiny figures connect. 

These cut-out stepping-stones are an invitation to work our way across the paper, stepping from one place to another, creating our own story-lines.
