The Pleasures

梁子恆專題插畫展

Nono Leong Illustration Exhibition

最初和梁子恆Nono談這次展覽主題時只是一個簡單的理念,就是尋回對繪畫的初衷。這也是很多修讀平面設計的人,選讀這科的原因,當然最後會發現,現實與理想是存在差距,甚至相反。可是Nono給人印象,是一個以插畫為主的設計師,或者說他的插畫是其作品中最令人印象深刻的,特別是為文化局畫的一系列世遺建築及人物插畫,其風格及構圖概念等,不知影響了多少插畫師及平面設計師。

這個風格的插畫是Nono善長的,無論在個人創作或是在文化和商業設計中,也可以以此融入其中。有一種插圖叫做梁子恆的插畫,斜角髮型方角頭,四正平視的建築物,將現實街景的人與物,用平面設計軟件的鋼筆曲線演化出來,呈現出平面設計師獨有的插畫風格。後來方型臉變了圓形臉,也加入一些肌理或質感。

今次個人作品中,Nono更喜歡玩味主題,將人物配帶面具,表情古靈精怪。這次展出的作品都是他為這個展覽而作的全新作品,並且一次過完成所有插畫及展場視覺效果。以黑色及蝦肉色的強烈對比作一個主視覺,人物表現出歡愉及喜悅的表情,可是每個人物都是沒有靈魂的骷髏造型,主題是酒、色、財、氣,像是歡樂背後隱藏無限的慾望,是喜是悲,不同人的觀感會有不同的解讀。

其中一張以《Slot Machine》做主題的插畫,加入兩個分別帶著老虎及黑眼罩面具的拳手對打,引用了港產片《賭俠2之上海灘賭聖》的經典對白「今晚打老虎 Comment allez-vous」,將插畫與賭博和流行文化相結合,令人感受到話裡有話的意思。日本的招財貓變了招財米奇,PLAYBOY的兔女朗變成骷髏樣,XO干邑裡藏著歡樂的骷髏人,以一個新的角度去詮譯這個繁華的都市背後,生活是精彩?是糜爛?

In my first talk with Nono Leong about the theme of this exhibition, it was just a simple idea, that is, to rediscover the original desire for painting. This is also the reason why many graphic design majors choose to study this discipline. Of course, in the end, they might find out there’s always a gap between reality and ideal, or vice versa. That said, however, Nono impresses people as a designer with a focus on illustration, or, it may be said that his illustrations are the most impressive of his works, especially the series of World Heritage buildings and figures for the Cultural Affairs Bureau -- their style and composition concept have influenced countless illustrators and graphic designers.

Nono is good at illustration in such style, one that can be incorporated into his personal creations and cultural and commercial designs. We may say there is a type of illustration called Nono Leong Illustration, with the typical bevel hairstyle, square head, and foursquare, tidy buildings; using curves created by graphic design software’s pen tool, he presented realistic street scenes with people and objects in illustration style unique to a graphic designer. Later, the square face evolved into the round face, with some textures added.

In the works shown in this solo exhibition, Nono likes to play with themes, creating figures wearing masks or with whimsical facial expressions. On show are all new works he has specially produced for the exhibition. He also developed, once and for all, visual effects for all the illustrations and this event. With the strong contrast between black and the shrimp color as the key visual, the characters put on a joyful, happy face, yet each of them is merely a skeleton without soul. With the theme being wine, women, wealth and temper (the four cardinal vices), it looks like there’s infinite desire hidden behind their joy. Therefore, different viewers would have different interpretations as to whether the presented characters are happy or sad.

One of the illustrations entitled Slot Machine features two fighting boxers respectively wearing a tiger mask and a black eye patch, and the classic quote "Comment Allez-vous” (whose pronunciation sounds like ‘Tonight beat the tiger’ in Cantonese) from a Hong Kong movie, God of Gamblers Part III: Back to Shanghai. Fusing gambling and pop culture elements into illustration, the work prompts viewers to ponder its implied meaning. What’s more, with the Maneki-neko
(Japanese lucky cat) being turned into the lucky Mickey and Playboy’s Playmate turned into a skeleton, the happy Skull Man hidden in XO cognac, Nono interprets from a new perspective what’s behind the bustling city: Is life wonderful, or debauched?
