Hsiao-Ron Cheng is a freelance illustrator and artist based in Taipei, Taiwan who works with a variety of media that includes pencil, oils, and digital, and this to-and-fro between art forms adds to the confusion of her art. From simple, organic pencil forms to full blown oil paintings of a T-Rex devouring innocent bunnies, the range of her work is confounding and astonishing.
In her own words, “my work alludes to the deformation that physically separates humans from plants and animals. The environments and situations that I paint are often of a surrealist nature, reminiscent of school, and partly based on fantasy. My aim is to create more complex worlds with complicated stories of childlike and cruel creatures, showing the different kinds of fragile and oppressive anima in life.”
