Behind The Cards: Tian Qin

The thought of building his own dream room since he was six kick-started Tian Qin's design journey, where the only thing limiting him was his own creativity. Tian looked up to Nimura Daisuke as his role model, which is clearly shown through his Myki card design submissions.

Tian writes:

"After being told about Cards for a Cause by my graphic design tutor, I have found it to be a meaningful but difficult mission which requires more attention and support from PTV. I then came across the flyers for the design competition and the rest is history. 

As graduation is right around the corner, I felt that the carefree days are coming to an end and it is time for me to be serious. Such feelings during this transition period are translated into both of my Myki designs through the themes of being "childlike" and "crazy" with people dancing in trams and toddlers crawling around the canvas. Sometimes, such designs have acted as an escape from reality where I am able to be myself, away from the seriousness and heaviness upon my shoulders. Through this competition, I'm able to self reflect and get support from others around me, which I am truly grateful of. 

In five years, I see myself embarking on a quest in pursuing a better understanding of modern art by traveling around the world and observing how different cultures have created various forms of art."


We're so excited to see how you grow as an artist Tian!
