Artwork Description

Drawings on paper, ready to hang

Signed on the front

This artwork comes with an external frame

I created this work for the Copic Marker Award, 2019. This is an international art prize hosted by Too. products inc. The creators of Copic markers. The award ceremony is held in Tokyo, Japan. This artwork was a finalist in the award, and as such, was framed and exhibited in Tokyo. I was fortunate to be able to attend the ceremony.

The artwork I created is of a woman walking in Tokyo at night in the rain. The lights from the neon signs bathe the scene in a red hue, and are reflected on the wet street. If you have spent time in Japan then you would be very familiar with the large transparent umbrellas which are so common there, sold in the convenience stores.

It is a dark, intensely coloured scene which makes quite an impact on the wall. The piece was inspired by the film Blade Runner - "The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long."

My signature is on the bottom right corner. The matboard has a sticker on it that says "copic award" as you can see in the photo. The work was framed using perspex instead of glass to be safer for international postage. The piece is now back in Australia and will be sent from the Gold Coast.
