These pictures from Chenman are what I would describe as beautifully strange. Based in Beijing, she is still in her twenties, and delivers amazing work.

While Chenman has an amazing portfolio of work, the pieces that really stand out for me are the many different scenes with Mickey Mouse ears. They're fabulous and just a crazy creative effort with or without the touch of Disney.

Implications - Consumers are looking for products that evoke memories but are still on the cutting edge. Using classic characters that have a modern twist to them are more attention grabbing than using the same image repeatedly. Companies could develop their products with this classic yet contemporary aesthetic in mind to attract more customers.
