The Illustrations Of Victo Ngai

Victo struck me with her rich, colorful illustrations, which partially draw influence from a childhood in Hong Kong and exposure to the very graphic folk art in the region. Following her migration to the states for an art education, she also had the chance to draw inspiration from western masters including Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, Norman Rockwell and many others, which contributed to her unique amalgam style. I just really like the sense of texture and patterns that she uses, mixed with her color choices which pop off the page.

Ever since getting her first break with her 'New Standard' piece getting accepted into Spectrum and garnering various accolades from the Society Of Illustrators, she's been quite the prolific editorial illustrator, contributing to a slew of publications. Check out more of her colorful work after the break!
