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.
