YiJie Chen (陳依婕) 是名獲得國際獎項肯定的台灣自由職業插畫師。她於蘇格蘭的愛丁堡藝術學院取得藝術插畫碩⼠。她的風格是集寫實、日系漫畫線條、超現實元素於一體的融合。她享受創造充滿對比性的圖像,靜謐⽽細緻豐富、理性⽽情感強烈。

她畫中的人物往往停駐在靜置的凝視瞬間,透過寧靜將敘事力道最大化。她的作品習慣以陰柔包覆批判性,網路現狀、女性物化、消費文化等都是她描繪的主題。

YiJie Chen

YiJie Chen (陳依婕) is an award winning freelance illustrator from Taiwan. Her clients include Bloomsbury Publishing UK.

 

Her alias is "EJ" - a simple way to pronounce her name. YiJie graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, with a MFA in Illustration. Her style gathers an evocative tone of realism, manga linework, and surrealism together. She enjoys making images with a juxtaposition of tranquility and richness, rationality and emotion. The figures in her works often stay still at a gazed moment, which maximize the narration power through serenity.

 

Instead of digging in art education early, YiJie gained a bachelor degree of French Language. After several years of work, including marketing one of her unfavoured products- surveillance camera in a tech company; serving one of her favourite snacks- macha tea (and) ice-cream in a over 100-years-old specialty tea shop in Osaka Japan. She made the twist of her life in 2018 - went to Scotland to pursue art after she realized an illustrator with soul was the role she desired to fit in most.

 

As a late bloomer with open mind, her works suit wide range of topics advantageously, and show capability in diverse application such as editorial illustration, commercial illustration, film poster and so on.
