Meijia Xu is an illustrator who is originally from China and now she becomes a New York-based freelance illustrator. She wants to use her abstract visual code to communicate with you and the world.
If I consider illustration as a bowl of food for other illustrators, their bowls are full of strawberries, lemons, bananas, ice cream, tomatoes, beans, and so on. Viewers are willing to try more illustrations with “familiar” tastes. As for my bowl, it is full of planets, glass fragments, unknown creatures, bugs, food crumbs, mixed wild vegetables, colorful batteries and some stuff that is inedible. Everyone is welcome to eat my “illustrations” with a little more braveness. Of course it is a worthwhile choice because they will have extraordinary experience.
