In this exhibition of illustrations and animations “Buzz”, you are going to see an art world with warmth and attitude. Three artists, Yukai Du, Zilai Feng and Inkee Wang, record their life and express their mind by means of flexible media of illustration and animation, showing different worlds of their own, among which some are quiet as lake, some are witty and quirky. There are both essence of thoughts and bizarre ideas. The countryside river or the city corner, are diversified dialogues between observation and imagination, representation and abstraction.

Yukai Du’s series of works are like poetry collections. The concise composition and contrasting colors are the records of her filtered thoughts. The careful and delicate arrangement of layers and the management of details fully present the depth and texture of the wonderful feelings.

The experience of cultural differences gained from years of overseas study has given Zilai Feng more thoughts about her own growth experience and cultural identity. Cultural isolation has caused her to unconsciously explore her childhood experiences and growth environment, and as the result, she created related works, presenting her unique style with vivid hand-painted and animated works.

Inkee Wang’s works are full of curious and humorous drama, which are given by those simple lines and exaggerated graffiti as well as the lively and comfortable style. She is good at digging and describing the stories and metaphors hidden behind things with bright colors, peculiar forms and strange visual styles.
In the world of illustrations and animations, their thoughts are released, and their imaginations grow freely in their works. The observation and understanding in real life are the clue of thoughts, which makes it possible to trace the ephemeral scenes and fleeting moments that once touched you.
