Entitled Pseudobotanica, 2020, this brilliant work departs from Jai’s usual renditions while still preserving his use of vibrant colours. Demure in characteristic, this piece almost looks like the artist’s rendition of a botanical illustration. Against a white paper, Jai depicts two species of plant using a transition of hues, from a greenish-blue to a vibrant red and burgundy. This seamless work grabs the attention of its viewer, calling them to inspect it further.
