This is a personal project of Kristopher Ho’s which has been ongoing since 2007. “Iblard” is inspired by animator Hayao Miyazaki and Ho’s favourite Japanese painter Naohisa Inoue’s paintings with the same title. This is his own interpretation of “Iblard”.

According to Naohisa Inoue, Iblard is a place that everyone possesses deep within. To Ho, Iblard has become something more than a name. It has become an idea, a lifestyle, a utopia. Therefore, he decided to create his own Iblard – a place of imagination and possibilities, a place where people can celebrate being part of the world where they can rediscover themselves. It is a place which everyone possesses from birth – the idea of being alive and optimistic.

"Maybe everyone will have a different interpretation of ‘Iblard’, but I believe everyone will agree it is a wonderful place with hope," says Ho. "It’s a tough life out there these days. I hope my interpretation of Iblard reminds you of your own one. It is an idea I would like to share with all my beloved ones."
