Student of the Week: Qiaoyi Shi

“I am very interested in illustrating books and stories. I always find it easier to work on subjects that are less personal. My main intention is to show feelings and events that people are intrigued by, but are not able to experience. Part of my process before I start drawing is to simplify it as much as I can and remove all the frills, in hope of achieving a more clear and stronger statement.
 I mostly work digitally, in mixed-media art or printmaking. Lately, I have been focusing on gouache paintings.”
