The Muara Kuin Floating Market in Indonesia, the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo and the Raohe Night Market in Taipei are the subjects of the first three illustrations in Jingyao Guo’s series of world marketplaces for ODLCO. Each illustration takes about a month for the artist to create. The results are colourful renditions of market life: the energies of the vendors and buyers are captured in great detail. The buzz of entrepreneurship, the curiosity engendered by tourism and the necessity of everyday errands combine to create a feast for the eyes.
