Bo Kim -Project – 03 – Wallpaper

bok-project-03

I wanted to depict the beauty of traditional Korean “Dancheong” pattern that was incorporated in traditional Korean architecture. Dancheong patterns were painted on buildings for not only decoration and protection purposes but also for spiritual purposes to avoid evil spirits. Dancheong’s use of five primary colors in geometric designs was revisited through coding, in order to study the wisdom of the ancestors in the arts.

I tried to portray a “hipster” design in a modern way that would fit well on the front of a sweatshirt. I added zigzags to represent the “hippie” look of the older days and springs of transparent circles to show the modern, 21st century style. Through this project, I became more used to and adept with using for loops.
