Introducing the artist for April’s residency program:
HsiaoYu is a Taiwanese illustrator who obtained her master’s degree in Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts in London. Her works focus on urban sketches and everyday objects.

Here is a message from the artist:

Since 2014, while studying and traveling in Europe, I began creating hand-drawn postcards and sending them to my friends as souvenirs. Each postcard I sent is one of a kind.

I noticed that people were happier than I expected when they received the postcards, and it brought me joy as well. This has become one of the motivations for me to continue this postcard project.

This month, I will share my daily life in Itoshima with my friends. I will introduce the mountains, sea, architecture, and crops that I have seen in April. By drawing these scenes on hand-drawn postcards and continuing to send them to my friends, I can feel the joy of sharing, even though we are far apart. I also hope that by receiving my experiences and emotions, our bonds will deepen even further.
