Yancong

ILLUSTRATION #6


1983 Born in Hubei
2006 Graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Chinese Painting Department
Lives and works in Beijing

Signed artist, chief editor of <Special Comix>, curator.

The stories of Yancong’s comix mostly are from his own life. The main role “Xiaosui” actually is from his own cat, coming from the main role’s name of Masashi Ueda’s comix <XiaoSui>.

Yancong always tries to restore the world’s absurd by the purest way.

烟囱

ILLUSTRATION #6


1983年生于湖北

2006年毕业于央美国画系

工作,居住在北京

签约艺术家,同时也是《SC》(Special Comix)漫画主编,策展人。

烟囱的漫画故事大都来源于其个人的生活,角色“小穗”其实是他个人的猫。灵感源于童年看的植田正志的漫画《小穗》里的主角名字。

烟囱的作品里,总在试着用最纯真的方式去还原这个世界的荒诞。
