"Egg Mc Manfen" (吉士蛋满分)
"Egg Mc Manfen" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
It's truly amazing to be able to see the ordinary through a new lens, take Andy Warhol for example. He shared his love for the classic “Hamburger” (1985) through his art. If you’re not convinced yet may I suggest watching “Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger” (1982) slathered in Heinz tomato ketchup? Picture it, the most iconic pop artist doing something so... mundane, it suddenly becomes an otherworldly experience! Maybe the problem is we’ve been focusing on catching up with life, we forget to look up at the stars every once in a while. Think about it when was the last time you did something for the very first time? In many cases this is simply accomplished by changing your perspective, like looking at the clouds through a kaleidoscope and realizing you hold all the universes in the palm of your hand. In Chinese culture there’s an expression, bao chi tong xin (保持童心) which means to be young at heart and it’s in this way we can explore life through a new lens. So, find a mysteriously poetic character in one of Andrei Tarkovsky movies you adore, or take a dive in Roy Lichtenstein’s fascinating comic book world and have a romantic stroll with a girl with a hair ribbon. The world is your oyster so start to enjoy all the juicy flavors it has to offer!
