The Colourful Bananas

The Colourful Bananas, watercolour on paper, 28.7 x 40.9 cm, 2018. (Melbourne, Australia)

Illustration (3/3, see 1/32/3) for the publication International: Melbourne.

Yes, we might look alike outside but we are different inside, said one of the colourful bananas. And the same rule applies to the colourful oranges, watermelons and durians. Isn’t it boring if you think we are all the same?

Riding the Tandem Bike

Riding the Tandem Bike, watercolour on paper, 28.5 x 40.7 cm, 2018. (Melbourne, Australia) The Good Room gallery

Illustration (2/3, see 1/3 & 3/3) for the publication International: Melbourne.

The work illustrates an individual who is cycling alone came across a group of characters who are travelling together on their tandem bike. It shows the contrast between being alone and being part of a group. I got this picture (Riding the Tandem Bike) in my mind when I read Pasha’s saying that she felt alone in class. Hopefully all of us can find our “tandem-bike-partners” no matter where we are.
