Genius Loci, Illustration

  • Genius Loci is an ancient Roman word which can be understood as “protective spirit of a place.” From my point of view, 6 wild animals with their distinctive characteristic are chosen to capture the atmosphere of 6 famous destinations in Vietnam: Vung Tau, Ho Chi Minh, Da Lat, Hue, Hoi An, and Ha Noi. They carry these landmarks on their bodies and turn into a part of the places. In other words, they become a coherent whole.

    This series was done in 2015 when I applied to Lasalle College of the Arts Singapore.
