“BOX MAN” from shanghai-based artist CINNAMON
Introducing Shanghai-based artist Cinnamon and his illustration series called “Box Man”. Cinnamon’s dream is to become a comic artist, but currently he’s the owner of a small restaurant. He’s also a member of an experimental electronic duo, The Swelling, whom we wrote about before. “Box Man” is actually inspired by the work of Japanese novelist Kobo Abe who wrote the 1973 novel The Box Man. The novel recounts the story of a lone traveler, observing society in a mobile, cardboard box home. Although Cinnamon’s series hasn’t got much in common with the character from the novel, it still shows a man interacting with the world in his unique way.
