The series of illustration about Science Society of China is a commissioned project. It was created for an article called ‘Science Society of China – the length of a short dream’ of Life Magazine, China. Read on and enjoy!

Back to 1905, a group of Chinese students, who were the pioneers of science in China, went to Cornell University in USA for their study. Science Society of China, which was the earliest Chinese scientistic organisation, as well as the earliest science magazine in China – Ke Xue (Science), were both created by those group of people. The artworks were inspired by their stories and lives.

  1. Never heard about Science Society of China. Quite astonished that it dates back to more than a century back. Coming to the artwork of the same, it has that vintage and old touch to it which truly justifies the time and the subject on which the society was based i.e., Science. Everything was done to perfection!

  2. This is very mysterious. What exactly is the Science Society of China? I guess that these evocative illustrations will make me go and find out more. Who are all the strange figures? What's happening in the lab? In the last picture, what's in the bowl? It looks like there are pills there. Very strange and atmospheric. Great stuff. Would be great to learn more.
