Other illustrations such as Modern Love describes the anxiety that young couples experience when separated, while the artwork Hope uses tulips and inverted glasses as a form of encouragement during the pandemic. Hope was a winner of the 2021 Communication Arts Shortlist award.

Love, a piece by Tan Bowen, a 26-year-old illustrator who graduated from California College of the Arts, was inspired by a photo of his parents taken when they were in college in Shanghai.

"There may have been countless couples who, like my parents, made vows of love somewhere in Sinan," said Tan.

"Other works in this exhibition describe the subtle moments in Shanghai, such as haircuts and public welfare scenes in our daily lives. I hope to recall some memories of Shanghai through my works," Tan added.
