CURATE // ART & DESIGN: Hye Jin Chung












We’re in love with the intricate, paper cutout-esque illustrations of Hye Jin Chung. She’s a New York-based Korean illustrator who graduated this year with an MFA in the Illustration as Visual Essay program from the School of Visual Arts. Her work reminds us of old children’s book illustrations - a little dark (themes like a mother’s anxiety are explored) but playful. One of the first comparisons that comes to mind is Ludwig Bemelman’s Madeline series. She’s already won multiple awards such as CMYK’s Top New Creatives.

Check out all of her beautiful collections here.
