A B O U T
Joan Yang is an illustrator, writer, creative consultant, amateur florist, rather novice photographer, aspiring Martha Stewart lifestyle magazine subscriber, barista, would-be circus performer/lion tamer, and so many more things that are not the doctor-cum-lawyer that her parents moved here to America for her to be probably????
Joan lives and works in New York, exploring through a variety of mediums the concept of softness (both as a state of consciousness as well as physical element of being), Murakami-esque surreal realism in overcrowded societies ordered by chaos and coincidence, sincerity in femininity, and what it is to be truly, wholeheartedly, heartbreakingly, earnest.
Her work has strong roots in the idea of feminine disciplines and ‘craft arts’ as a displaced high art form. She is foremost concerned with drawing connections to the idea of loneliness in the human condition: quiet and sweet; often times hilarious; always intangible and ever present.
She is a huge fan of Pizza Hut.
