MA Visual Arts: Illustration, Camberwell College of Arts 2018
Siyu has a great interest in cities and their inhabitants, particularly the way that urban sprawls can bring together individuals and create unqiue experiences for their inhabitants on a daily basis. It is this interest that has led to her illustrations focusing on community and the smalls details in people's lives.
Working primarily in acrylic, charcoal and pencil, Siyu's work is full of carefully constructed layers. In particular she likes to play with creating textures, creating compositions that are tenderly illustrated and subtly expressive, exploring the microcosm's of human relationships.
"I hope my audience can feel a kind of empathy with my works and think they know what it’s like with the stories or facts I tell behind my illustrations."
