TK Chan 陳紫君
"World of Love" is local artist Ms TK Chan's latest ink collection inspired by Earth Day. It is about the love, balance and harmony between mother Earth, humans and animals.
In the World of Love collection, you may see animals with their families, people with different nationalities, and even fishes and birds can be found in this new collection, like in a perfectly harmonious world. The artist would like to raise awareness of global warming and encourage people to eat vegetables instead of meat.
The many circles in the painting represent the different people and animals living together on the Earth. And the Four-Leaf Clover is a symbol of Love, Health, Glory and Riches.
