CAN Review – Meisanmui creates beautifully rendered manga characters that demonstrate a fluidity of line combined with subtle washes of skin tone colour that bring life to the artwork. Her animated piece ‘The Last Lament x KOKO Kairika’ has a very touching back story that deals with Meisanmui’s bipolar disorder, and the artwork is currently up for auction on Foundation.app with proceeds of the sale going to a local hospital in Thailand. The geometric border around the artwork and the subtle animated effects provide a sense of a virtual ‘playing card’, but what really captures the eye is the incredible detail and subtlety of tone and colour in the face and hair.
QUOTE – Featuring with KOKO Kairika. This picture has meaning to me as I was drawing when I am in a euphoria state in Singapore and I paint it later after I suffering from bipolar disorder. When I finish the piece I hope that it’s my ‘Last lament’ ……and it should be your ‘Last lament’ too. My friend KOKO brings it to life in this version.https://foundation.app/meisanmui/the-last-lament-x-koko-kairika-24780
Her manga series ‘Seraphim Torus’ reveals a wealth of characters and artwork such as the stunning ‘Huiren’ below. Again, the elegant line work and subtlety of colour demonstrates Meisanmui’s mastery of manga illustration techniques and the use of colour in the face is particularly compelling. You can visit the Opensea link below the image to view the NFT of this artwork.
The final piece of artwork ‘Hummingbird’, has a more graphical style in terms of the line work and use of ‘collage’ elements. However, there are still touches of Meisanmui’s distinctive tonal brush work around the lips and eyes. The composition is playful, yet delicate and doesn’t overwhelm the viewer with too many elements, as there is enough white space for the eye to ‘rest’. This artwork is part of a collection on Opensea that is definitely worth investigating as there are a number of incredible pieces to collect.
CAN hope to see more of Meisanmui’s work in the near future, and believe that her relatively undiscovered status is about to change very soon as her expertise in illustration is undeniable. Her charitable work is also very touching and we hope that bids start coming in soon for her incredible work on ‘The Last Lament‘.
