Jun Cen is a Chinese artist who has worked with many prominent names such as The New Yorker, The New York Times, WeTransfer, Vogue, Wall Street Journal, etc.
“As a kid I was always drawing,” he told It’s Nice That. “Around the time I was a teenager, there were some local comics magazines with open submissions and I entered. I can still remember how happy I was that first time my art was selected to be published.”
Cen’s work often revolves around the theme of loneliness in modern times. He explains why: “Even the words we use in both virtual and real worlds sometimes become a means of censorship to silence those who hold different opinions. When I feel frustrated or lonely, I feel more like an individual than any other time. So my recent work focuses on these moments of introspection.”
