MorE FoR LesS : BanaNa ViruS 10th ExhiBitioN includes BanaNa ViruS LOIC, his famous artwork which was designed in 2011.
The design is based on asymmetrical balance and the combination of points, lines and surfaces, which make LOIC special from others. LOIC represents itself as “Fan”, who always accompanies with everyone. It transmits the essence of “CONTACT”. The no-mouth design also aloud it to follow any emotions.
