Shinji

2013

A character inspired by Persian carpet design and Islamic architecture.
I created the silhouette of this piece by taking influence from the central symmetric medallion ornamentation present in Persian carpets.
From there, I built off the initial design with simple line work and geometric patterns. 
I aimed to create a reserved "character" full of anxiety and tenseness.
