Eunice Liu is an illustrator of Chinese descent currently living and working in the US. With a background in traditional drawing and painting, Liu is using digital media to create abstract figurative illustrations connecting historical art conventions with the technological advances of today. Liu’s Chinese heritage serves as cross-cultural inspiration and her work is fueled by her connection to Chinese literature and mythology. Liu is influenced by James Jean, Yuko Shimizu and Victo Ngai; illustrators who produce works using ink, graphite and digital technology. Traditional Chinese “Lianhuanhua”, books of sequential drawings, are another influence on the artist’s work. Fusing together traditional illustration and digital art creates a type of modernization of history, a revamping of old techniques in a way that makes them relevant today. Liu uses modern technology to create a fantastical aesthetic of her own.
