Admiration of Peonies by ancient Chinese poet Liu Yuxi, " The most beautiful flower in this country is only peony; the blooming season of peonies attracts everybody."
The purpose of making Admiration of Peonies is to create and express the Chinese character "Beauty" in designer's mind and excute a communication exchange between Master Tong Yang Tse's calligraphy and my illustration. The inspiration of the poster comes from a poem called Admiration of Peonies by ancient Chinese poet Liu Yuxi.
Audience can imagine the amazing scene of the blooming peonies through the art of Chinese typography by the poster.
