The Baz Luhrmann collection is a series of abstract illustrations based on and inspired by the lyrics of the 1999 track “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” by Baz Luhrmann. Each large print features words from the song situated in different environments.
Today Cruzine presents a photo gallery dedicated to China. This country, which was hidden from the Western world behind the Great Wall for centuries to protect its traditions and preserve its lifestyle and culture, amazes the whole world today with its rapid growth in terms of both quantity and quality. For many centuries, China was a secret for European and North American people; though it was China that gave papermaking, compass, gunpowder and printing to the Mankind. Today, the curtain is parted (at least, partially), and people from the entire world can learn all the variety of the Chinese microcosm with its specific coloring, shapes, and phenomena.
China is a country of contrast; and the way foreigners perceive China also varies greatly. On one hand, China is the country where the high technology industry flourishes with hundreds of world’s top companies’ production facilities located there. On the other hand, the label “Made in China” is often treated as the synonym of poor quality. Such contrast is also vividly illustrated on the images, presented below. The unique landscapes and sceneries of divine Nature interweave with the pictures of overcrowded and industrialized cities. Ancient wisdom and unique culture, cherished by many generations, is now under the powerful influence of globalization. Today, the face of China may transform, trying to adapt to the global challenges, but, hopefully, modern China will succeed in preserving and multiplying the great legacy, once generated by one of the world’s richest cultures.
Fictitious designs are a good chance for me to experiment with colors, shapes and typography without any limitation. Here I created the “Cyphernaut Series” which should look dark but with a prominent color.
