Peaceful home.

Traditional Nianhua that Ye Hongxing saw as a child inspired Peaceful Home, a surprising work that combines a conventional new year motif with contemporary objects. After creating the initial image using Adobe Photoshop on MacBook Pro, she then worked directly on the canvas, adding a variety of colourful stickers. For Ye, these everyday details create a feeling of serenity and belonging.

Rich Harvest by Zhou Fan

Zhou Fan

Rich harvest.

The fantasy feel of Zhou Fan’s Rich Harvest was inspired by early memories: red lanterns, the sound of firecrackers, colourful festivities. Zhou hand-painted the detailed images first. He then multiplied and overlapped them using Adobe Photoshop on MacBook Pro to create a surreal image of a plentiful harvest that captures the spirit of bountiful blessings.
