PHER - MURKY

MURKY was a music video by the artist, PHER, directed by Jonathon Salmon and Abdi Ibrahim. The video showcases a love story between the protagonist and a mermaid (revealed at the end).

I was asked to design & build a mermaid costume inspired by "Mami Wata", an African water spirit who is depicted as a mermaid. I spliced the legend of "Mami Wata" with the appearance of an African arowana fish and came up with the design.
