Tourist: To Have You Back
A CGI color splash from the Grammy Award-winning British musician.
For his latest release, Tourist—aka London-based electronic artist William Phillips, known for his Grammy Award-winning collaboration with singer-songwriter Sam Smith—enlisted art directors Davy Evans and Jason Drew to create a twisted visual metaphor, an “abstract story of the decay and breakup of a relationship and its eventual rekindling.”
Having created visuals for artists including The XX (Evans) and Thom Yorke (Drew), the directors envisioned a minimal CGI still life that bleeds and blends to kaleidoscopic effect. “Black liquid (the breakup), meets color and finally neon explosions (the rekindling).”
