Love in Bloom by buko is the kind of design that reveals itself slowly, full of secrets that you have to search out from all the detail. At first glance the strange bird and girl’s silhouette stand out, an odd embrace that uses its unusualness to inspire curiosity. Because in this artistic world, a bird isn’t just a bird, it’s also a beating heart battling through being pierced by an arrow. Flowers might form a friendly background, but they’re also shedding petals at an alarming rate. And even the girl, passive though she might seem, carries in her hand the crescent moon. In this artistic take on love, there is great beauty, but you definitely have to fight for it, and expect a few surprises.
