What I've done

Hi! I am Yuqing, a BFA Illustration student who is currently enrolled in School of Visual Arts. I am fascinated with mysterious adventure stories on dreamily enigmatic stages, with characters who are dressed in a decadent and luxurious manner. The lurking tension and danger amongst the characters, as well as in the space surrounding them is the theme of my paintings. 


I get most of my inspirations for painting by deconstructing every aspect of my life and then reconstructing those elements into my paintings (like the statue from my bookshelf, the pieces of jewelry from fashion magazines that I collected, or the vintage dresses my grandmother made for me when I was a little. ) All the details in my paintings are connective points between the real and the imaginary.
