“Through personal and nostalgic illustrations, “Right Here Waiting” compares and contrasts traditional and modern cultures of my hometown, Hangzhou.”
Mingjun Guo is recent graduate with an illustration major at OCAD University. With an on-going learning process, her work explores a variety of media, such as water-colour, acrylic, gouache, and more. Mingjun Guo's work generally speaks the relationship between nature and human in a philosophical perspective. Nature not only brings human resources but also teaches them life lessons. Personally, Mingjun believes every plant has its own spirituality and resembles a person's life. The life of a plant starts from seeding, sprouting, blooming, to eventually bearing fruit... Nature has granted a plant a meaningful life through this entire process. Likewise, human kind are meant to have a similar purpose. In its simplest form, nature nourishes and teaches people to live an abundant life, with the ultimate goal to bear fruit.
