Pei-Hsin is a Taiwanese visual storyteller with a particular focus on illustration and animation, currently based in Berlin.
Her work is narrative-based and revolves around sensationalism and sentimentalism, at themes of self-introspection, mentality, psychology. Combining traditional sketching and digital painting with multi-software, her visual language whispers in a tender but lingered voice that provoke emotional truths to its reader.
With her background of fine art practice, Pei’s work on contemporary animation and illustration usually contains a touch of experimental creativity. It takes personal sentiment and wraps this with rational
narration to catalyse subjective experience and memory. She sees her work as emotional band aids, to her and to the viewers.
p.s. She is hopelessly addicted to cat and tea.
