Triumph Inspirational Awards 2012
Finalist’s Name: Josiah Chua
Representing School: LASALLE College of the Arts
Design Piece: Punkcelain
My design elements are taken from ancestral Chinese culture, referencing motifs and silhouettes of dragons and butterflies in Chinese porcelain and ornaments then fusing them with the Punk spirit. The result is a rebellious edge to tradition, achieving an unexpected East meets West aesthetic. Visuals of dragons and butterflies were created through techniques found in the Punk culture such as spray art and bleaching, giving the piece an edgy, provocative look.
