Nancy Liang’s art is a crossover between illustrating, animating, collage making, and coding. “Being creative is way more interesting when you experiment and play across different fields,” writes Liang on her website. Her art is interesting if nothing else.
Having studied design at UNSW Art and Design, her degree allowed her much creative freedom, exploring fields like graphics, jewelry, textiles, and sustainability. “Although I originally studied design, a lot of who I am now in illustration is self-made,” she says. “I drifted through my studies and only buckled down and worked hard in illustration near the very end of my degree.”
Based in Sydney, her images are inspired by the scenes of Australian suburbia, with her creations (both traditional and digital) blending together the real with the surreal. “I think of myself as an artist who was put on this planet to push the boundaries in some way in the creative field and contribute something interesting,” writes Liang. “My work is all about revealing the hidden wonders of our everyday suburbs, but also delves into histories and stories, especially of a past Australia.”
After experimenting with a huge variety of styles, her style has evolved into a unique blend that will hopefully delight you as much as it did us.
