Jasu Hu’s Simple yet Bold Digital Paintings

With an interest in fashion and structural aesthetics, Jasu Hu uses simple yet strong compositions but also plays with the figure, patterns and colour.

Her ongoing series of fashion illustration sketches are particularly lighthearted and playful.

Jasu’s distinctive combination of skilled drawing and simplicity has already won her many much deserved accolades since recently finishing her MFA Illustration Practice course in Baltimore.

As well as being the AOI’s New Talent winner in 2014, she has won honours from Society of Illustrators, Creative Quarterly, and many more.

Below, she tells us a little about herself and how the location of her home town in China may have influenced her work today.

I’m a freelance illustrator from China, currently based in New York. I create images for editorials, advertisings, app games and the passion of myself.

Most of my works were done digitally with brush textures. I’m a structure-lover, especially architecture, fashion and sculpture.

I grew up in a countryside with rice fields, rivers and mountains. So I guess that might be the main reason why I always draw quiet scenes!
