The concept: Niji (rainbow) food
The inspiration for this series developed from my obsession with rainbows and Japanese cuisine. I decided to merge the two and depict them in a traditional Japanese style – that of Wabi Sabi. Wabi sabi is both a philosophy for life and the arts – it means to find beauty in the imperfectly perfect. I aimed to push this idea through contrasting clean shapes, type and flat colour with obviously hand-illustrated elements containing a spectrum of colour.
