Guardian Spirits Collection Original Art Print - Jing Wei
What is your Guardian Spirit? Find yours.
ARTIST COLLABORATION - Guardian Spirits Collection Inspired by Chinese and Japanese folklore, a guardian spirit is a mysterious entity that haunts humans and influences their character and behaviour. Jen created all the images from original words of description. Instead of using traditional watercolour and ink, she mixed acrylic with gouache and finished with colour pencils to add highlights to Eastern freehand.
ABOUT THE ARTIST Jen Xu is an artist/illustrator based in Shanghai.
ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATION - 精卫 / jīng wèi / Jīng Wèi has a dialogue with the sea where the sea scoffs her, saying that she won't be able to fill it up even in a million years, whereupon she retorts that she will spend ten million years, even one hundred million years, whatever it takes to fill up the sea so that others would not have to perish as she did. From this myth comes the Chinese chengyu idiom "Jīng Wèi Tries to Fill the Sea", meaning dogged determination and perseverance in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
