YEAR OF THE TIGAAA
by qubibi

In the Asian countries including Japan, there exists something called the ‘animal zodiac.’ It is said to have started in the ancient Chinese history. In Japan, we keep an yearly calendar according to the twelve animals, and 2010 happened to be the year of the ‘Tiger.’

Tigers have a strong yellow and black stripe pattern: the yellow of the sun, and the black of the darkness. This artwork was inspired by such stripes of the tiger. I hope you enjoy the endless cycle of the tiger days.

日本、アジアのいくつかの国では干支というものが存在します。古代中国に始まったものだそうです。日本では一年ごとに十二の動物(十二支)を割り当てて呼ぶのですが、2010年は日本では「寅年」でした。

虎には黄色と黒の強烈な縞模様があります。太陽の黄色と闇の黒。この作品は虎の縞模様をきっかけに作ったものです。永久的に繰り返される寅の日々を、お楽しみください。
