China Now V&A

At the weekend I braved the icy cold winds to visit the V&A exhibition 'China Now'. I was interested mainly by the advertised graphic designers of Shenzen but I found myself much more drawn to the second section of the exhibition featuring fashion and lifestyle. The graphic design was lovely and all but nothing blew me away unlike the photo's of Maleonn a chinese photographer. There's just something so playful and childlike about his work which really appeals to me and also really reminded of scenes from the film 'The Science of Sleep' which has the same sought of aesthetic, if you haven't seen this you really should. I love the romanticism of opting for the unrealistic solution, it really encourages the imagination, enjoy!

A drawing and a Haiku

Floating flowers lie
Like a cherry blossom moon
The sound of nothing
