Year of the Rabbit in Taiwan

This wonderful cover was sent from Hsinchu City (新竹市) on February 13th, 2011.  James kindly affixed Year of the rabbit stamps and miniature sheet on the cover.  The designs find inspiration in modern art styles, such as action painting and pop art.  The motif rabbits are depicted using black silhouettes that are adorned with orange and purple paint splatters, which create lively compositions.

The backgrounds, which are yellow with random red splatters, cleverly make use of traditional Chinese ink-wash effects.  The bright colors symbolise joy and convey high expectations about the Year of the Rabbit.  Thank you very much James!  -_-
