SORAPOL S/S2012

After graduating in the summer of 2011 I decided to embark on a new chapter in my life and move to London to find work and focus on what i loved most, fashion and design. A new couture label known as 'Sorapol' encourage up and coming designers to contribute towards the brand and work hand in hand to produce innovative work from all spectrums of design. I was in charge of producing some of the art work which was used for promotion, staff and online.


Here is the background image that I designed for the brands first collection entitled 'True colours'. The designer wanted something that linked in with the collection and spoke about the story that they had written themselves but without being too obvious. The story of 'Coccinelle' unfolds a tale about a young woman who was lavished in the decadence of high society but soon takes a turn for the worst, a husband who commits the cardinal sin of adultery, a life changing plane crash which results in a moment of awakening and self motivation in the fight for survival amongst an array of exotic and rare bugs.

A version of this design was used for the VIP and general invites which were sent out by our team. The VIP invites were in colour and mounted onto thick cardboard and the general invites were printed on a high quality paper around 300+gsm if i remember correctly and were all perfumed by the designer's specifically chosen scent.


I also created the designs for the passes on show day, these included the following:

Colour- Backstage for staff
Black and white - Photographers
Gold- VIP, production and designers

Radia Magazine did a write up on me :)


Tommy Pang is an emerging new face in the fashion and illustration world and a definite ‘one-to-watch’ in the coming years. At only 22 years old, he has already gained notoriety for his illustration talent by winning Company Magazine’s illustration competition in 2009 and consequently illustrating for the debut issue of its bi-annual sister publication The High Street Edit. Having received numerous offers and opportunities to illustrate for top brands Tommy has also managed to maintain his education at Loughborough University where he studies illustration. Not one to rest on his laurels and no doubt heavily influenced by his time interning at Company Magazine, Tommy has also acquired the position as Style Editor for b[liminal] Magazine; subsequently demonstrating his desire not to be pigeon holed as merely an illustrator.

Somehow between all his responsibilities he also managed to illustrate the Alexa Chung editorial for RADIA too.

On meeting Tommy you encounter a tall, attractive, stylish and perhaps inadvertently confident individual. When conversing with him regarding fashion, photography, illustrating or the plethora of his various creative outlets it is almost as if his passion is tangible. Clearly, this is a young guy who has thoroughly studied his craft and has unwavering belief in his ability. Perhaps that is why themes of progress and evolution frequently reoccur in our chat together; drive and determination such as Tommy’s requires a destination; something to discover; a holy grail if you’ll allow for such hyperbole. The word inspiring comes close to an understatement.

It is clear after talking with Tommy that although his hands can create captivating imagery, his vision extends beyond the two dimensional notion of pencil meets paper. He is a man with several stories to tell and he will not be restricted in the method of their delivery.

AI WEIWEI



Photograph by Tommy Pang

I went to the TATE in London and saw AI WEIWEI'S sunflower seeds exhibition.
Absolutely amazing. If you're in London town, go check it out :)

Credit: Words below were taken by the TATE website.

Sunflower Seeds is made up of millions of small works, each apparently identical, but actually unique. However realistic they may seem, these life-sized sunflower seed husks are in fact intricately hand-crafted in porcelain.

Each seed has been individually sculpted and painted by specialists working in small-scale workshops in the Chinese city of Jingdezhen. Far from being industrially produced, they are the effort of hundreds of skilled hands. Poured into the interior of the Turbine Hall’s vast industrial space, the 100 million seeds form a seemingly infinite landscape.

Porcelain is almost synonymous with China and, to make this work, Ai Weiwei has manipulated traditional methods of crafting what has historically been one of China’s most prized exports. Sunflower Seeds invites us to look more closely at the ‘Made in China’ phenomenon and the geo-politics of cultural and economic exchange today.

Update: Friday 22 October 2010

The landscape of sunflower seeds can be looked upon from the Turbine Hall bridge, or viewed at close-range in the east end of the Turbine Hall on Level 1. It is no longer possible to walk on the surface of the work, but visitors can walk close to the edges of the sunflower seed landscape on the west and north sides.

Although porcelain is very robust, we have been advised that the interaction of visitors with the sculpture can cause dust which could be damaging to health following repeated inhalation over a long period of time. In consequence, Tate, in consultation with the artist, has decided not to allow members of the public to walk across the sculpture.

Sunflower Seeds is a total work made up of millions of individual pieces which together from a single unique surface. In order to maintain and preserve the landscape as a whole, Tate asks visitors not to touch or remove the sunflower seeds.

Juliet Bingham, Curator, Tate Modern

"Ai Weiwei's Unilever Series commission, Sunflower Seeds, is a beautiful, poignant and thought-provoking sculpture. The thinking behind the work lies in far more than just the idea of walking on it. The precious nature of the material, the effort of production and the narrative and personal content create a powerful commentary on the human condition. Sunflower Seeds is a vast sculpture that visitors can contemplate at close range on Level 1 or look upon from the Turbine Hall bridge above. Each piece is a part of the whole, a commentary on the relationship between the individual and the masses. The work continues to pose challenging questions: What does it mean to be an individual in today's society? Are we insignificant or powerless unless we act together? What do our increasing desires, materialism and number mean for society, the environment and the future?"
