Meet the Artist: Chris Yee

16 Jan 2020

Artist Collaboration with Chris Yee

Chris Yee (b. 1989) initially majoring in graphic and textiles design, is an East Ryde (Sydney) based Artist, working Illustrator, Designer & Animator specialising in traditional “pen and paper” methodologies.

He believes in the power of character and storytelling and is heavily drawn to constructing narratives ranging from the humorous to the monstrous and macabre. Inspired by Comics, Wrestling, K-pop, punk and 2000’s rap – it is the Hyperreal and grey area within these genres, the blurring believability between reality and fiction that he finds most engaging.

Growing up in 90’s Ryde, amongst the strong communities of Eastwood he is a proud member of the evolving Asian-Australian
Creative identity. He strongly believes there is a unique character and original narrative found within this changing community.
Outside his art practice, Chris is a designer and animator who has produced work for some of Australia’s best-known brands, including VIVID Festival Sydney, Sony Australia, Samsung – Opera House, Vans, Red Bull, Marvel Comics and Gelato Messina. Chris recently Spoke at Sydney’s 2019 Semi Permanent festival on Future creative youth and industry.
