Poster for 100 Posters Hakka Impression International Poster Invitation Exhibition (Shenzhen 2018), organized by Shenzhen International Poster Festival and Red Cube Public Art & Planning Museum, China.
For my poster I looked into Hakka history and architecture. As rivalry for resources turned to armed warfare, the Hakka began building communal living structures designed to be easily defensible. These houses, sometimes called tulou, were often round in shape and internally divided into many compartments for food storage, living quarters, ancestral temple, armoury etc. The largest houses covered over 40,000 sqm and it is not unusual to find surviving houses of over 10,000 sqm.The tulous are either round or square, and were designed as a large fortress and apartment building in one. The eyes in the buildings are symbols for both looking back in history and towards future.
Exhibition held in the Red Cube Public Art and Planning Museum, Shenzhen, China.More than 100 designers from more than 20 countries and regions all over the world have been devoted to interpreting the Hakka and its culture in their eyes, and presenting the impression of various Hakkas to the public with 100 poster art works.
