Entitled Pseudobotanica, 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 a bouquet of a certain flower species and uses a transition of hues on its petals, from a blueish-green to a vibrant violet colour. This seamless work grabs the attention of its viewer, calling them to inspect it further.
