Among my childhood memories,those black and white deco art books from my parents’ shelves, they influenced a lot of my style for a very long time.( Remembered I only like drawing black ink works for many years). It was incredibly popular during all of the last century, but now you even couldn’t find many of this type of deco art references( not the digital one) any more on internet but the libraries. It is such a shame because I do think it is such an elegant art style. Perhaps after hundred years, traditional line works will become real antique. Especially since digital technic developed so much, hand painted deco art became more and more precious. Generally I use a traditional way and digital way both to create my works, however, I will say no technic could replace hand-painting, it doesn’t matter how advanced the digital technic can be, I will never give up drawing lines and shapes on the papers.
