Aster Hung Captures Beauty and Horror in Fantastical Illustrations


Aster Hung

There are some images that just stick with you, and Aster Hung’s above illus­tra­tion is one of them—the com­bi­na­tion of beau­ty and hor­ror is both com­pelling and thought-pro­vok­ing. It’s one part of her series called Gar­den in the Dark, which fea­tures fig­ures whose bod­ies are ravaged—by nature or by man—yet sur­round­ed by the splen­dor of blooms. Aster describes it (and with her oth­er work) as cap­tur­ing “fan­tas­ti­cal spaces with ties to more sober­ing real­i­ties.”

Aster sells her work through Soci­ety6.
