    Victo Ngai is not short of accolades, having won two gold medals from the Society of Illustrators, as well as being featured on the prestigious Forbes 2014 30 under 30: Art & Style list.

    Born in Hong Kong, Ngai graduated from Rhode Island School of Design and works primarily as an editorial illustrator. Now based in New York, she has illustrated for newspapers, magazines, books and advertising campaigns. Ngai’s client list is incredible, previously working with the likes of New York Times and the New Yorker, IMAX, Folio Society, Somerest House London, Lufthansa Airline and General Electric.

    Victo Ngai’s style, though it does vary quite a bit, is often intricate and rhythmic. Incorporating pattern and repetition, many of her pieces remind me of Medieval and Japanese tapestries. I really love her colours choices for the outline of the main figures. It does a wonderful job of distinguishing the figure, whilst at the same time, unifying it with an often complex background.

    Hop over to her website for more work. Whilst there, do not forget to watch her short interviews with Like Knows Like and Forge Magazine.
