MARINE FANTASTIC:
AN ILLUSTRATED INTRODUCTION TO CRUSTACEANS

Come November, the K+ gallery turns into a mini natural history museum of sorts, thanks to Wu Yanrong and her wonderful painterly illustrations.

Marine Fantastic draws on Yanrong’s longtime fascination with marine life, a topic that aroused her interest when she found out that we have only explored less than five per cent of the sea. With their peculiar looks and habits and their equally amusing nicknames, Yanrong finds crabs and shrimps particularly captivating.

“The creatures I am showcasing here is a mere fraction of what’s out there in the deep. Imagine what other curious things we will find when we finally move on to explore the other 95 per cent.”

We hope these characterful illustrations will spark your love of the sea, and nature at large too. Come catch Marine Fantastic from 3 November to 17 December 2017.
