BK Tape No.020 // Travel Within
The design of the "Travel Within" series took place during the 2nd half of 2020 as we were asked to stay closer to home, resulting in us getting to know more of the authentic self. Emil created each artwork for Travel Within project in collaboration with Frido. The process started with a unique phrase that deeply resonated with the BK philosophy and took many rounds of prototypes and a twisty design process to reach the outcomes. If you are interested in reading more about the design process through Emil's lens, please check out this story.
"I was inspired by vintage lithograph travel posters made by printing colors separately in layers. Following this idea, I painted separate gouache layers in black and white, which I colored and layered on digitally. This method allowed me to create a variety of textures to complement the mood of each piece. The imperfect layered edges also added a feeling of vibration to the imagery.
The Travel Within series was focused on introspection, so I aimed for each piece to portray more a sense of energy rather than a specific location. Each scene is surreal, yet welcoming and familiar, like a forgotten dream brought to life." - Emil
