展覽簡介|

 

Cheers mate 的名稱來自於英國常見的口語會話,Cheers美式英文翻譯成乾杯或慶祝,然而在英式英語中其實是謝謝(Thanks)的意思,四個插畫家來自於台灣及北京,看似毫無交集但在英國留學而相遇。美式的翻譯加上英式英語的解釋造就成我們在異地學習及完成學業的一種愉悅式感謝。此外插畫本來就是快樂愉悅之感,故借用Cheers Mate當作此次的展覽名稱。

由於插畫在台灣的大學並沒有設置專業學科,但插畫卻漸漸成為現代社會的顯學,另外台灣學生出國留學普遍多為碩士課程,所以此展覽目的是揭曉英國插畫系的課程內容、研究方式、求學經過、展覽經驗和海外生活方式等等。除了與民眾或藝術愛好者分享英國獨有的學習方式之外,也藉此介紹英國各個藝術學院的屬性並展現各個多元獨立插畫家獨有的創作方式。

Cheers mate is the British slang, which means ‘Thanks’. However, compared to American English, the meaning of Cheers mate is totally different. Our exhibitors come from Taiwan and Beijing, but we met in Great Britain. Therefore, we decided to name this special British term ‘Cheers Mate’ as our exhibition. Not only it could represent the English life style but also imply the happiness and pleasure as well as the impression of illustration.

The aim of the exhibition is that we would like to introduce British education in Illustration field and share the experience about studying overseas and reveal what the differences between western and eastern countries. During the show, we would display sketchbooks, journals and drafts in public, which could let people realize each illustrator’s unique approach and technic.

創作理念|

 

[ 張亮 ]
在我做的大部分editorial(編輯性)插畫中,我試著去做一些搞笑的,滑稽的東西,用漫畫式的幽默表達一些想法,或說明社會中的一些現象。我现在的畫是由精细的線條和有限定的幾個或多個顏色組成的,顏色一般是强烈和明快的。話題沉重或枯燥,顏色卻能讓它變得好玩,或產生諷刺的效果,何樂而不為之?

Hip hop和漫畫或插畫是兩個完全不同的領域,但它们卻有著某種強烈的關聯。比如,漫畫裡的超级英雄們有著不同的超能力,正如說唱歌手,他們在強大自己的同時帶給世人能量、動力與靈感。再者,像說唱歌手Nicki Minaj和Busta Rhymes誇張式的表演,就如同漫畫中的超级英雄,给人以不一樣的美感,或暴力,或純粹。有一點尤為重要,那就是它們都是敘述性的作品。

[ Pam Pam Liu ]
從2010年開始每一年聖誕節都會產出一篇特別故事,依據“聖誕節”為主題延伸出許多故事線,這是展覽的即是5年來的其中幾頁原稿。以往在電影與電視上所呈現的聖誕節都帶有歡樂的色彩,但經過在倫敦度過兩次此節日,發現其實聖誕節帶有的是一點悲慘寂寞及怪異色彩的氣氛,所以選擇之當作長年來作品主題的原因。

[ 喇叭吮 ]
因為受到特殊印刷的影響,作品堅持以Risograph呈現方式營造出手工仿絹印感,插畫內容常以天馬行空卻帶有黑色的幽默來展現自我意識的描述。“假扮”是一直以來出現在作品的中心思想,經過不同的插畫人物的假扮來討論關於現實生活人類內心真實的情感,並由轉化似的荒謬圖像讓作品明確表達出作者內心的敘述性故事。

[ Fly Chen ]
啟蒙Fly Chen藝術家如Allen Jones, Keith Haring, Yuko Shimizu and Tom Wesslmann等,讓他的作品偏向表達自我的超現實風格。從自我學習發展出具有強烈及對比性象徵自己的獨特色調。

[ Fly Chen ]

Fly Chen 來自於中國北京,目前就讀於倫敦藝術大學視覺傳達系主修插畫學士專業,在倫敦就學期間參與了許多插畫聯展及個展,並於2016年贏得First Place of Young Designer Print Competition London首獎插畫作品被印制於皮件販售。

對比的色調及強烈飽和的顏色是Fly Chen 常用的插畫表現方式,多色的塗鴉感及嘉年華的氣氛是最可以表達Fly 的熱情的內心世界,近期的插畫作品靈感多為個人對於文化的衝擊及反思。

Fly Chen’s artworks are distinguishable by a strong contrasting colour palette, evocative of pop carnivals and graffiti that are both individually liberating and essentially personal. Always coming from a self-referential approach, his artworks celebrate the emotional exuberance of displacement and has cultural shock voiced upon sensual surfaces.

Fly has a great love for modern art and in particular pop art. He is drawn in by the strong contrasting colour palette in pop art works and has seen this influence his own colourful style of drawing. He is constantly observing the world and life around him, looking for those flashes of colour that so attract and stand out to him.
