CITY SPIRIT

Computer Arts - - Showcase - TAIPEI by Hsiao-Ron Cheng www.hsiaoroncheng.com

Free­lance il­lus­tra­tor Hsiao-Ron Cheng cre­ated this por­trait for the 2016 In­ter­na­tional De­sign House Ex­hi­bi­tion in Taipei. Run­ning with the theme of the Tai­wanese cap­i­tal, she came up with the idea of mix­ing her sig­na­ture style of fe­male por­trait with a city view. “I ini­tially tried to il­lus­trate a street view, but por­traits are what I’m good at, and I thought it would be in­ter­est­ing to do one in an un­ex­pected way,” ex­plains Cheng. A res­i­dent of Taipei, Cheng felt a strong con­nec­tion with the sub­ject mat­ter. “I have a spe­cial feel­ing for the city,” she says, “and I think that feel­ing as­sim­i­lates into this work some­how.”
