I went to grad school with the (now) New York-based illustrator Dingding Hu, and it’s been a pleasure seeing her work develop since we’ve graduated. I love these colorful, bizarre, and energetic illustrations that she’s made. They’re busy scenes with a lot of details, so make sure that you look at what’s happening in both the foreground and background — it’s all very entertaining!
Dingding writes that “she loves to make fun and juicy images, to express her curiosity about the quirkiness of everyday life.” I’d say it’s everyday life+ . She enhances the ordinary with surreal and dreamlike elements.
