Eunjung Shin’s Illustrations Balance Storytelling with Design

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Korean illustrator Eunjung Shin creates pattern-heavy work that uses folkloric imagery for contemporary, design-oriented results. Heavy curtains of flowers and vines dominate the surfaces that Shin painstakingly renders with marker and ink. Shin reigns in these natural forms, creating clean, geometric compositions that control and compartmentalize the chaos within. Some of the works, like Time of Flower, where a girl is devoured by a carnivorous flower inside a cube-shaped space, nostalgically hearken back to Victorian story book illustrations while others, like Chess Knight appear more focused on design than narrative. Take a look at some of Eunjung Shin’s work below.
