These colorful mangafied vases are the result of a brilliant artistic fusion between traditional Chinese art and the ever popular manga-style techno-pop art. The contemporary creations by Kamloops, British Columbia-based ceramicist and artist Brendan Lee Satish Tang are known as Manga Ormolu.
Sharing a similar ideal as Brian Jungen's native art sculptures, the Manga Ormolu series combines culture rich artistry with modern pop to convey the artist's message.
Implications - The gorgeous vases would definitely be sure to liven up any mantel piece or desk. Brights colors are used to make the vases really standout. The manga part of the vase almost looks like some sort of robot hiding within the Chinese piece of decor.
