Physical Description:

Old school lettering with figurative decorations inspired in Japanese aesthetics with two busts of women crowning the central lettering. The dominant shade is light blue and blue, giving both the lettering and the figures a volumetric effect of depth.

Iconography:

"Harmony', as with Iwana's other artworks for SAMA, is a clear example of his unique and easily recognisable style. The scene is dominated by the two female figures with Asian taste and comic features accompanied by iconographic elements such as umbrellas, books or the owl. The body of the work is a superb large-scale lettering created by the artist that refers to the title of the artwork.
