TECO Education Director Charlin Chang expressed her opinion, “The unique of illustration is about the expression of the story from each of it. Recently, Taiwanese illustrators become more common and popular in the mainstream. We should show our fully support to these creative students. Also one of the illustrator, Jennie Yip points out “the biggest difference between illustration and fine art is that illustration is a form of commercial art: its aesthetics applies to everyday life. It has to perform certain functions and convey information to its target audience. It needs to take into account the practical and the aesthetic. This information is carried through newspapers, magazines, books, merchandise, and the internet into public life.”
The fifteen Taiwanese illustrators are Nina Edwards, Jennie Yip, Clovia Ng, Wen-Chi, Fang-Chun Lo, Julia Yellow, Ying-Fan Chen,Shao-Wei Chang, Keisha Chiu,Susan Lee,Han-Yuan Yu(Fashion Institute of Technology), Haley Lin(School of Visual Art) ,Yu-Ming Huang .( Savannah College of Art and Design) , Yu Ting Cheng，Jessie Luo，Maryland Institute College of Art). The exhibition is very diverse, through different creative themes (fashion, travel, fantasy, character design), mediums (watercolor, oil painting, digital, video) and markets (animation, graphic novels, picture books, stationery, decorative wall art), these illustrators demonstrate diverse, lively, and everyday sides of the illustration field.
