    kiDChan, also known as Cyanparade, is an artist and illustrator based in Malaysia. Her enchanting artwork has amassed 14 thousand followers on Twitter and in access of an incredible 65 thousand watchers on DeviantArt.

    After finishing secondary school, kiDChan applied to Malaysia’s leading art & design college, The One Academy. She earned a place with a scholarship program. It was around this time that kiDChan started putting her work online, slowly but surely growing her fans and influence. She has travelled the world lending her words to events and her work to brands, books, and apparel.

    Though kiDChan’s style is definitely unique, it wears its influences on its sleeve. Contemporary Japanese art and modern design elements blend with early 20th-century illustration and Art Nouveau. Yet, when filtered and elaborated, kiDChan is able to produce artwork that is both familiar and completely fresh. Something else that stands out when looking at kiDChan’s artwork is her composition. Composing colours, patterns, textures, flowing fabrics and floral embellishments remarkably well. Finding a harmony between them and never distracting the viewer from the focal point.

    Despite their detailed nature, her illustrations transfer to products surprisingly well. Be it tote bags, pillows, mugs, or rugs. All of which you can find on her Society6 shop.

    kiDChan has set up a Patreon. Sharing with her patrons flat PSDs, drawing process videos, and ebooks, among other treats. To see some of her older process videos check out her YouTube channel.
