Y’all know we’re suckers for mixed media collages, especially when they’re done by great local artists. Lin Mei is a Sydney artist who has been working in design and animation for years, before she tried her hand at illustration.
It turns out she was pretty great at it, creating surreal and geometric collages that used cut and paste imagery, graphic design and hand drawn detail. Mei seems to be one of those rare artists who excels at everything she puts her hand to, but try not to hold that against her. Her animations, which tell stories of adventures through daydream landscapes, are also a trip and recently she was asked to recreate one of her scenes in mural form in the Shenzhen Subway in China.
Meanwhile, her collages are fantasies of crystals, rainbows and galaxies, kind of like a Jackson Five music video.
