PeiHsin Cho  /ˈpɛ ʃɪn ˌdʒɔ/ 

PeiHsin is a London-based visual storyteller from Taiwan, specializing in illustration and animation.

 

Her work revolves around the complexities of human emotions, exploring the depths of sentimentality across a wide range of subjects. Pei blends traditional and digital techniques, weaving elaborate visual language and texture to transcribe the subtleties of human emotion into ethereal and atmospheric imagery, catalysing viewers to engage their subjective experiences and memories. ​Her works have been recognized by international awards, and can be seen in a variety of publications and film festivals around the world.

Additional note: she is hopelessly addicted to cats and tea, which often find their way into her work.

霈欣

生於台灣桃園,畢業於台北藝術大學動畫系與英國皇家藝術學院視覺傳達與插畫系。現以視覺創作者的身分居住在倫敦,貓咪是生活和創作的必需品。

作品以敘事為基礎,圍繞情緒切入不同題材,透過溫柔並隱晦的視覺語言包裹感性,細膩並理性地描繪出情緒的質地,催化觀者的親密主觀體驗與記憶碎片。作品曾受多項國際獎項認可,散見於不同雜誌、刊物與國際影展。其作品Crown Shyness (樹冠羞避)曾榮獲2020年桃園插畫金獎、2021年波隆納BCBF-SM插畫大獎,並於2022年由西班牙 Grupo SM 出版首本繪本
