"Portrait Playing Cards" are a special deck of playing cards designed for cardistry. They reflect the refinement of the relationship between light and shadow and traditional techniques. Everything is examined through the lens of the creator's personal thought and practice.
Only 2,500 decks of limited edition "Portrait To Art Playing Cards" were printd. They were designed by World Tree, produced in Taiwan, and distributed by About Cardistry.
About "Portrait Playing Cards" (from the creator):
"Art wood originates from people's thinking and exploration of life, human beings as the subject carry everything, it is like a rose, beautiful and full of danger. Art is the figurative expression of human ideological desire, the interlacing of light and shadow, the arrangement of lines, the combination of ideal and reality."
"Can you show some personal ideas to others in physical products?" This was the starting point for this project.
So let's get started.
Behind the casual opportunity is a relatively long period of conception and refinement, I summarize and refine the relationship between light and shadow from classical art, combining modern art style and my personal ideas, techniques and exercises. Finally, on September 1 last year, I completed a version that I was relatively satisfied with, and then I shared it on my personal account.
In October last year, I was approached by Xiang Brother about Hana-kiri, he said that he liked my work very much, and asked if I would like to work together to make it really come to fruition. At that time, I was very happy because I wanted my works to be seen by more people, and I also looked forward to everyone's evaluation.
After the official launch of this project, we carried out a long period of research and revision. Now that it's done, I hope you will love it as much as I do. It's a worthy addition to any playing card collection.
