YI XIAO CHEN : Artist on oh joséphine, Art Concept Store

Yi Xiao Chen is a 26-year-old Chinese-Australian contemporary illustrator and visual artist living in Perth, Australia. In 2013, he made his first illustrations for various publications.

His main subject is portraiture. The style he developed can be described as minimalist or semi-abstract figurative art. 

He tries to convey as much individuality and personality to his subjects as much as possible using basic forms. Its inspiration comes from details rather than specific individuals, such as certain gestures, the way light falls on the skin, color combinations or the way a body interacts with its environment.

The characters in his artistic creations are like characters in a foreign movie or strangers you meet briefly in an exotic place; feelings or memories rather than real people.
