Lee Weien’s illustration
Born and raised in Taipei, graduated from the Product Design at Ming Chuan University in Taiwan and the Master of Illustrator of the University of Creative Arts in the UK.
Weien is a person who seems a bit shy, but she doesn’t like the meaningless rules. She likes to sneak a rebellious person without affecting others and not violating morality.
She is interested in using sequential imagery to tell stories about contemporary society. Her narrative themes focus on social issues, in particular inequality in society. Her narratives highlight cultural inequalities both in eastern and western societies.
Weien uses beautiful and sometimes decorative imagery to communicate darker and sinister narratives, subverting our expectations and stereotypes of contemporary society.
The meaning of artistic creation for Weien is she could found recognition from herself and others through the works she made. She hopes that if she could be a successful artist, other children who also have the fond of arts could have a more comfortable path to the art career in Taiwan.
