The illustrations created by Taiwanese illustrator Chiachi Yu are incredible rich with tactile marks and textures, making the scenes she creates brim with expression.
Chiachi has a skill for constructing narratives in her images with originality and pleasingly unexpected choices of colour and design.
She has a really nice playful streak when it comes to the way she builds her compositions, applies marks, and selects palettes.
She tells us a little about herself as well as some unexpected neighbours around her home in Taipei.
I am a freelance illustrator. I grew up in Taiwan and studied Fine Art at the National Art School in Nancy, France. I started my career as an illustrator in 2006.
I love using mixed materials and would like to create interesting, living illustrations.
I lives in Taipei, Taiwan now. I have 11 cats and 1 dog. Also, she take care of the street cats in my neighborhood.
