I’m a 26 year old Chinese-Australian contemporary illustrator and visual artist currently living in Perth, Western Australia. I have a medical background and I am currently working as a doctor in Perth. I am a self-taught digital illustrator and I started illustrating for various publications in 2013.
My work is mainly portraiture and the style I developed can be best described as reductive or semi-abstract portraiture. I try to convey as much individuality and personality to my subject as I can using basic shapes and forms.
I tend to draw inspirations from details rather than specific individuals. Like certain gestures, the way the light falls on skin, colour combinations, the way a body interacts with it’s environment, etc. For me the figures in my drawings are like characters in a foreign film or strangers that you briefly encounter in an exotic place; impressions or memories rather than real people.
