| Paper-cut Series |                     


A series of illustrations derive from my exploration of paper-cut arts.
Since the year 2019, I started to experiment on how to bring paper-cut arts into my illustrations, as a result of my rising interest in folk art, especially paper-cut patterns. I feel the geometric and symmetric nature in the folk arts has a peaceful beauty of myth.

The /Lost in Spring/ series was made in  spring 2021,  inspired by the cheerful spring in Cambridge, where I was studying at that time.
The /Insects kindergarten/ is made in 2019, a work researching on paper-cut insect characters.

The experiment process brings me so much pleasure and inspirations.
I hope I can bring this folk visual language into picturebook some day.
