Silhouettes – by Misha Lee

One of my favorite movies is the epic Chinese masterpiece ‘To Live‘. While it may very well be one of the most tragic and depressing movies ever made, I still think of it after all these years, and mostly I recall the moments of the film that contained the ancient art of Chinese shadow play, or shadow puppetry. This form of storytelling seems all but forgotten, but it gives hope to see young designers and artists take their inspiration from this ancient art, which is why I was so taken with this series from Misha Lee called Silhouettes. This served as her graduation project, but the poetic vision and detailed artistry go far beyond a student work. It is simply stunning.
