I periodically browse my favorite foreign sites, in which almost every day you can find some brand new star of the art world. I immediately would like to break away from the big word of art, and call this freshly discovered and so little represented person an illustrator.
Just like recently introduced Yuko Shimizu, Sean Chao could not find opportunities in his homeland to open up and realise himself and his creative side. In 2000 he left Taipei, Taiwan, and went to Los Angeles to seek his fate. There he finished school and became an illustrator.
Main tools of an author: acrylic paint, pencil and gouache. Topics vary but the best works, in my opinion, are the ones which are related to overtones of global warming and similar kind of problems.
Since he is just a recently discovered illustrator who hasn’t got a big baggage of work, I have nothing more to add too. The only thing I know is that we will probably hear more from him in the future.
So I have done my duty and I hope this wasn’t a waste of time for you.
