Adam brought this representation of the TOKYORAMA theme to life through his hair mastery sourced from the inspiration of traditional Japanese tiles that were used to architecturally form some of the buildings.

 

 

“Taking this element of design, I combined the contemporary curves and twists in more modern structures to inspire the front wave situated in the front/top of the head. Moving into the back of the head, the two ‘braided wraps’ represent the various textures used in the more modern style architecture. The textures have a beauty about them, and a flavour of warrior-like strength, complemented by straight pieces of hair around the hairline. This was to soften the overall look, while still keeping a dramatic overall feel to it.”
