Breaking the News

Zofia Chamienia 
Community Growing

New Talent

Yuanyuan Liu 
Mural at Camberwell

New Talent

The artist was commissioned to create this mural at the Camberwell College of Art, UAL. The mural shows all kinds of creative things happening in the art school—some people do art while some see artworks and get inspired. The background elements are inspired by London landmarks.

Weston Wei 
After the Applause

New Talent

This project is a series of illustrations created for After the Applause, a Re-TROS special concert at Mercedes-Benz Arena, Shanghai. Rebuilding The Rights Of Statues, better known as Re-TROS, were forerunners of the so-called China-rock explosion of the mid-2000s, where a raft of groups inspired by western post-punk rose to prominence. These illustrations insipred by Re-TROS’s song: Surrender.

Weston Wei is an illustrator based in New York and originally from China.
