YiJie Chen is an award winning Taiwanese freelance illustrator. She graduated from Edinburgh college of art in Scotland, with a MFA in Illustration. Instead of digging in art education early, she held a bachelor degree of French Language. Before she made the twist of her life, she tried different long-term jobs which formed today's her. Including working at a marketing team in a tech corporation, and in a over 100-years-old sencha tea shop in Japan serving tea and ice-cream.
The distinctive symbol of her works is her singular style goes along with an evocative tone. She'd like her work to provide a vibe would engulf people into her bright surreal scenes.
She love to apply her art in a wide range of topics, sometimes they are issues concerned paradox. Such as feminism, race equality and capitalism. Her works are very applicable to editorial illustration, and she is happy to create more illustration works for book cover and film poster too.
