Lao Zi Philosophy Conference

“Being is born of non-being.” This wise yet convoluted saying from the ancient philosopher, Lao Zi, was the inspiration for this philosophy conference poster. I wanted to illustrate the state of “non-being” and bring forth the spiritual aspect of his philosophies and teachings by depicting him as an omniscient and elusive figure. Sayings of Lao Zi are shown in English whereas excerpts from the Tao De Ching are shown in Chinese.
