Culture + – Zodiac Photography
Zodiac in the City photo series takes inspiration from traditional Chinese Zodiac animals. Paul’s interpretation is to humanize them across the city of Hong Kong. The artist manipulates the human body while integrating animal heads. Each picture represents a Zodiac animal within a specific environment inspired from its own personality in a very aesthetic way. Paul wants to highlight some iconic locations of Hong Kong and reinterpret them in a unique way.
The humanized animals also got influenced by some of Paul’s favourite childhood comic books in the aesthetic and style of each protagonist in the pictures. The realistic style melting with vibrant colours make some unique Hong Kong art pieces. Also keep the eye open to catch one of his little signatures that he hides in every picture!
In Chinese Zodiac History date back to the Jade Emperor who wanted to select 12 animals to be his guards. He sent an immortal into the man’s world to spread the message that the first one to pass through the Heaven Gate will get the better rank in his court.
