Dongni WEI

Hello! I’m Dongni WEI, from China. I’m an artist who has worked alongside the International Illustration Creation Centre. I am also an illustrator and an author signed with Daylight Publishing House (China).

I like travelling. I did a lot of observational drawing during my trips and also got inspiration from it. The city in the first project shown here is based in Prague.

I’m keen on using bold and vibrant colours. I used to use mixed media for my artwork. Since last summer, I tried to explore printmaking. I found that the effect of screen printing is quite matched to the art voice I want. The reason why I’m into screen-printing is because it can create unexpected artwork by limited colours.

My interests are storytelling based on journey, the interaction of children’s book design and how colours work in children’s picture books.
