Artist's Statement
As a visual designer and poster artist, I am inspired to use social and environmental values as a motive for my work. I have been interested in the potential of design and visual communication to shape human perception and experience positively. I have focused on social and environmental posters as opportunities to engage my design and examine pressing issues of our times.

As a visual designer and poster artist, I am inspired to use social and environmental values as a motive for my work. I have been interested in the potential of design and visual communication to shape human perception and experience positively. I have focused on social and environmental posters as opportunities to engage my design and examine pressing issues of our times.
This poster reflects the problem of the ecosystem with the current COVID issue. The poster illustrates that humans are a part of the ecology system. Ecology is a gestalt (configuration) made of many parts and yet is greater than or different from the combination of its parts. Also, I introduce each individual species as a unique organism and represent the whole system simultaneously. Biodiversity in mutual respect is key to sustaining life on Earth livable, and human existence would be impossible without its harmonizing effects. I want to demonstrate my hope that our planet can be a healthy and harmonized ecology with the visual language (elements) I introduce into my poster work. I assert that it is necessary to raise awareness about the issues of our environment and encourage an appreciation and respect essential for achieving ecological vitality.
