Reggae reflects people`s life and its different sides and I wanted to express Reggae represent it on the bright side of life as it is the light of the life and its reflection. This is the Reggae message that it is the rythem of the steps of people in their lives.
The idea of the poster is “Tolerance”.
Tolerance is complicated word.
Tolerance consist of many aspects: tolerance to race or tolerance to opinion or tolerance to self expression.
In this poster we can see our Planet that listens to reggae music wearing headphones. This music is like a worlwide message (and the phrase in the work is about this), that’s why the main character is the whole Planet. Reggae delights the listener and sends a good mood. The Earth is smiling and looks at the neighbouring stars. These sounds make the Planet and us get into their atmosphere.
Inspired by this years theme “Reggae Music: Messages from Jamaica to the World”, I have done an illustration of a heron or egret like bird , singing out the message of reggae music. The body of the bird is shaped like Jamaican map.
Through the hair elements of Jamaica, the poster seems to be unveiled, and Jamaican reggae music is performed on the world stage.
The symbol of the lion is the symbol of music, and then the rich theme color is used to make the passion and energy full.
Through the depiction of the subject matter close to the topic, the subject matter is a guitar and a piano key.
This work is inspired by the Reggae dance. The combination of a dancing girl and a guitar online shows the two art forms harmoniously merge together. As Reggae music spreads worldwide today, this work symbolizes that the message of peace, represented in Reggae music and culture, has influenced every corder of the world.
Jamaican music is the music of Earth. It is powerful and addictive. It has a special energy and vibe so influence everyone. That’s why I had drawn reggae vinyl record like a UFO.
