The Merchant of Venice

Client : Create Theatre Poster (2018)
Project “Create Theatre Poster” supplies experimental stage in poster creative. The classic has universality. But in additional, we need a new philosophy, more creative, more modern. Using the works of the great playwright, we create the poster that has never exist.

In this work, I am expressing that what’s “justice”. The scale placed in center is a symbol of “Judgment”. And important element of the story.
What is justice? Who is right? Is Shylock a bad person? The checkerboard placed on the poster is the law-court. The conflict and a tension of the court are developed on the chessboard. The characters of plays are presented as chess pieces.
