New Year's Greeting Postage Stamps by Taiwan

To welcome the year of the Rabbit, Chunghwa Post (Taiwan) has issued a set of two New Year's Greeting Postage Stamps and a souvenir sheet.

The designs find inspiration in modern art styles, such as action painting and pop art. The motif rabbits are depicted using black silhouettes that are adorned with orange and purple paint splatters, which create lively compositions.

The backgrounds, which are yellow with random red splatters, cleverly make use of traditional Chinese ink-wash effects. The bright colors symbolize joy and convey high expectations about the Year of the Rabbit.
