涂画故事 by Chenglong Piao

Wasuka Art is a visual artist management agency that helps artists develop their careers and promote their work globally.

Afforable Art fair guide
Nights in Suspense Series

Her art photography has earned her a tremendous amount of awards, such as the Nairn Scholarship, the Lila Acheson Wallace Scholarship from Reader’s Digest, and the Yale Full Tuition Waiver.

Lingmuki is experienced in using different mediums including oil painting, Chinese painting, watercolor drawing, digital drawing, etc. Her works have been featured in various publications & galleries around the world, to point that she has been so popular with commissioned artwork.


Andre Tan | World of Pop

Afforable Art fair guide
LOVE URAN TO THE MOON AND BACK TOO
Chinese Bride #42

Andre Tan’s work is very reminiscent of Pop Art and how we can reproduce images from pop culture. His commercial style explores popular icons and cultural motifs under a bright, porcelain style, in a smorgasbord of patterning, layering, and unlikely juxtapositions. We can definitely see why Andre is an upcoming artist that we need to watch out for.


Kin | Indulge in an Adventure of Whimsy

Afforable Art fair guide
Supersurreal And The Invisible Heroes 5
Supersurreal And The Invisible Heroes 3

Kin’s an artist whose work speaks volumes about his personality. He invites us into his world of whimsical characters and landscapes that defy the laws of physics. His surreal and playful style is infectious yet somewhat reminiscent of coziness and soothing. It is comparable to Studio Ghibli animations, from the feeling to the colors.
