Melted Stars by Oscar CHAN Yik Long
Drawings by Oscar CHAN Yik Long
“I splash ink on paper. Then I follow my hands, letting them do their thing. As I observe the result, my mind searches for a face. From the face I sense a creature. I develop this creature. Really I work with the splash. It’s already decided once the splash is done.”
Zine of astral choreographies and ink-spawned mythologies. Helsinki-based Hong Kong artist Oscar CHAN Yik Long taps the ecstatically eldritch by splashing ink on paper and then letting the mind-in-his-hand intuit a creature. Rapidly drawing these mythic beings out of the shadows and into the spectacular light, the artist gorgeously renders some wretched ends.
