As an illustrator, Kevin Tong is a disciplined tactician. To view his work is to see how he approaches his canvas, like a game board — elements to move and push. Withdraw. Playing until there is only one possible outcome.
His catalog of work is strong with focused compositions and designs. He is a draftsman after all, fitting elegant design deep into his work.
Like Tong, Ansin is a skilled draftsman. His designs are graceful — perfect. An Ansin illustration is the opposite of vulgar. There’s beauty in the lines and in the silken textures. His prints are luxurious.
Mondo let loose a few previews of the Ansin & Tong show that opens at the gallery this Friday March 14th at 7PM.
Here’s hoping for a few more before the doors open.
