The illustrations of Juliana Wang
The works of London-based illustrator Juliana Wang are very interesting through her approach to certain themes and issues, but also through her creative process, her distinct and varied colour combinations, fine textures and bold brush strokes that add a rich, vibrant and unique tone to her illustrations.
We also love the way she juxtaposes, intersects and overlays elements to create strong narratives where you always have the possibility of discovering new details that make the story even more appealing, and sometimes dynamic.
Besides her commissions and a graphic novel exploring cultural identities, Juliana Wang also teaches at The Prince’s Trust Drawing Clubs.
