Jiyeun Kang / Long listed for the World Illustration Awards 2021

Jiyeun Kang

This illustration, illustrated by JiYeun Kang was selected as one of the long listed pieces by the Association (AOI) of Illustrators World Illustration Awards 2021(WIA) in the editorial category.
The piece, titled 5G Future was commissioned by Erin Aulov of the POLITICO.
With the anxious tone through composition and shadows between the cell tower which represents China’s 5G infrastructure and the man which represents that of Europe and the US, it depicts well the conflict between the two parts.
By putting the vivid color on the Chines flag and limited, muted color on other parts, this piece stand out more the subject of this article.
