The illustration for February was done by YoAz, an artist based in Paris, France. His artwork is known for its fine detail and density, using geometric patterns inspired by pop art, street art, and cubism. YoAz created this month’s art piece with a symmetrical geometric pattern based on the hop sprout and plum blossoms (which usually bloom in February). He shared his thoughts saying, “I wanted show the idea of energy and the awakening of the senses.” He also told us that he is a fan of Japanese anime and literature. “With that artwork, I wanted to show the idea of tranquility and also of complexity that you can find in Japanese culture,” said YoAz.
