See the world differently, if only for a little while! Here’s a few Singapore illustrators you should get clued up on.
We’ve got a whole lieu of fantastic fashion illustrators here in Singapore, ranging from your usual pen and paper to something a little more creative. From fashion illustrators to landscape artists, here’s some of my faves below.
Alex Tang Weihao
I literally want every outfit Alex Tang Weihao brings to life. He daylights as a pharmacist and sketches in his free time, bringing each of his gorgeous and sophisticated drawings to the internet via his Instagram and Tumblr. He’s also a man after my own heart with a self-confessed love for red lipstick – totally sold.
Each of Grace’s gorgeous creations has me immediately googling the nearest flower field. As you can see from her delicate illustration above, she uses flower petals to make some of the most gorgeous dresses and she dabbles with markers and watercolours as well. Funnily enough, she graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration – talk about a 180!
Kimberly Anne Lim
Kimberly’s black and white sketches have a whole lot of attitude, earning her a name as one of Singer’s most forefront freelance illustrators. Her motto is “Art doesn’t have to be beautiful”, but there is an innate and undeniable beauty in her ragged lines and shading. After studying at Lasalle College of the Arts, she found her passion illustrating and drawing upon the fashion photographers and eclectic industry she fell in love with.
Teresa Lim’s approach to illustration is a quirky one – they’re all done in embroidery! Not only does she do super cute embroidery pieces with a whole lot of florals, sequins and patterns, she’s also a master of what I’ve officially coined embroidery-sketches of places on her travels like our China Town above. This girl is crazy talented.
While Zhou Jixuan’s art style might not be everybody’s cup of tea, her punchy illustrations definitely make a statement. After scoring a degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology (no small feat), she turned to graphic design and illustration full time. Expect colours, humour and the occasional social commentary, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
