After looking through various designs of Tarot decks throughout its long history, we thought it would be interesting to invite a group of contemporary artists to share their interpretations of these mystical cards. Inspired by Carl Rohrig, a German painter renowned for his beautifully crafted deck, imagination is key. Each artist has chosen one of the 21 Major Arcana cards and recreated it based on their skill set and aesthetic.
