22nd Annual Designing Women Andrea Wan is an artist and illustrator and Visual Artist born in Hong Kong, rasied in Vancouver and based in Berlin. Her work is primitive, yet highly sophisticated.

Andrea talks about her work in this article by Valentin Porcher, Artistic director at OLOW

Quoting  begins A lot of my work are emotionally driven, and those are basic human emotions that a lot of people can relate to either they are aware of them or not. Also I guess most of us liked reading stories as kids, so I think my work might have provided a world for a lot of grown up kids (as well as little kids) to get lost in. Quoting  ends


Her parents were graphic designers, and she spent her days in their studio, exposed to all the art supplies and tools! Watch this Vimeo movie, and listen carefully about "mistakes" ...

in an article about public art, the author Monique comments :

Quoting  begins Wan’s work brings together an eclectic mix of imagery ranging from spooky ghosts riding enchanted horses to squirt gun wielding women. These curious depictions are all part of Wan’s fantastical folklore inspired world and have given her much notoriety around the world. Quoting  ends

She's a special talent -- hope you enjoy visiting her as much as I did!
