CHINA: ILLUSTRATION: SIYU CHEN
Siyu Chen grew up in China, did her MFA in New York and now lives in Germany. Perhaps her life experience across the world has led to her globally appealing illustrations.
Chen’s work is drawn with brush and ink and colored digitally. She says her inspiration “generally comes from reading: fantasy stories, fictions, poems, history.” She also draws from cinema, having a fondness for the Japanese animation of Miyazaki Hayao. Siyu wants to create works of fantasy, and it would make her happiest to know that viewers are able to see the stories in her art.
