Jo Cheung

JO CHEUNG IS AN ILLUSTRATOR AND DESIGNER BASED IN NORTH LONDON AND SPENDS MOST OF HER TIME WORKING FROM HER LOFT STUDIO WITH HER TWO CATS, MARIO AND TOSHKA.

HER WORK OFTEN DEPICTS IMAGINARY, DREAMY AND IDYLLIC LANDSCAPES; SCENES WITH ANIMALS AND BIRDS ROAMING FREELY IN THE WILD WITH NO HUMAN INTERVENTION. IT’S THE COMPLEX AND OFTEN FRAUGHT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE NATURAL WORLD AND HUMANS THAT IS A CONTINUING AND CONSTANT THEME WITHIN HER WORK. MUCH OF THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE SELF-INITIATED WHICH ARE THEN USED AS PRINTS AND OTHER PAPER PRODUCTS IN HER ETSY SHOP. SHE HAS TAKEN PART IN NUMEROUS EXHIBITIONS ACROSS LONDON AS WELL AS SHOWCASING SOME OF HER ILLUSTRATIONS IN PUBLICATIONS SUCH AS MACUSER MAGAZINE.

JO WORKS WITH HAND DRAWN AND PAINTED ELEMENTS FROM HER SKETCHBOOK, THEY ARE THEN SCANNED INTO THE COMPUTER AND FINISHED OFF IN PHOTOSHOP. SHE IS ALWAYS LOOKING AT DIFFERENT WAYS OF MAKING IMAGES, WHETHER IT’S USING DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES OR FINDING UNUSUAL WAYS OF MARK MAKING, THE SENSE OF FREEDOM IS REFLECTED IN HER WORK.
