'Tiger Lilies' Art Nouveau Print
This print was inspired by the work of Aphonse Mucha, one of the great Art Nouveau visionaries of the late 1800s.
When Tokugawa Japan finally opened to foreign trade in the mid 1800s, Japanese Ukiyo-e prints flooded Europe. The bold, graphic Japanese aesthetic inspired many European artists and sparked several new movements, including Art Nouveau.
In this print, I wanted to capture the joy of a wild, powerful creature bounding through a field of tiger lilies. While the design is flattened and very stylized, it still hints at a greater natural world expanding beyond the print's edge.
