A digital artwork by artist Tim Christie, as part of our IN:SIGHT 2018 collection.
As the mastermind behind fashion-forward concept MONOMOKO, Tim combines photography and digital illustration to create images that fuse tradition with modern technology.
The name embodies the monochromatic colour palette and the symmetry of the traditional Tā Moko face and body markings practised by Māori, the indigenous people of New Zealand. The underlying images are out of focus so the diagonal black and white lines transition from thin to heavy in a seamless linear flow.
Tim says: “I embrace the currency of ideas – rather than trend – to innovate and push creative boundaries.”
