|The editor of 72 Transformations: Concept Designs for
the Monkey King has commissioned 72 artists worldwide to
draw the mythical Chinese hero, "Monkey King," each in
his or her own unique way. They are then free to employ
different interpretations, styles and media to create images
rich in symbolic meaning¡ªthe highlight of the book!
The 72 images include personalised "re-creations" of the
Monkey King image, a fresh version of an image of the Monkey
King taken from a scene in Journey to the West, or a model based
on the Monkey King together with other actual objects and
characters. In addition to displaying the 72 works, the artists
also use step-by-step drawings and text to explain their creative
process and what they gained from it, as well as their perceptions
of the Chinese folk hero, the Monkey King. This section will
offer readers a more profound experience and deeper insight
into how to undertake conceptual design and artistic creation.
Commissioning a single-theme creative project on such a large
scale is a very meaningful affair, and designers and readers
will get a chance to see all sorts of fascinating creative acts
that occur when an artist undertakes a conceptual design.
But equally, this is an excellent opportunity for Monkey
King aficionados to acquire a world-class collector's item.
