ACHICA > Jason Ratliff
“Life’s but a walking shadow”, So sayeth The Bard. But when Jason Ratliff named his poster series after Shakespeare’s solemn decree, the artist also took it upon himself to brighten the mood. He infuses the shadows cast by everyday people and animals with rainbow hues and comforting geometry. By design, the meaning of each piece is open to the viewer, inviting them to participate in the creative act and discover a meaning of their own. The intent was to leave room for others to co-create, to see what they want to see and find their own connection. Jason Ratliff hails from Indianapolis in the US and is a designer by trade, artist by heart. He aims to create works that charm; playful explorations of mixing intricate illustrations of the mundane with smacks of lively bright colour that breathe life into the otherwise ordinary.
