Kintsugi 金継ぎ

Photography Kintsugi 金継ぎ

"The philosophy behind kintsugi is that when repairing something broken, one should not try to hide the break, but embrace it as a part of the object.”

About this work

In this artwork, I combined my creative prowess with that of Jiro Jur (Amazing JIRO) in a collaboration crossing cultural and artistic backgrounds.

Through the use of fine linework and combined creative styles, Jiro and I created an exquisite composition expressing the concepts of kintsugi, non-attachment, acceptance of change and fate. Together we turned the beautiful Zoey Sao into a porcelain-human hybrid.

She is regal and bewitching, a clear example of both our styles. Even if you are broken, you can always see the scars of transformation and wear them proudly.
