L’innocente umorismo delle illustrazioni di Minju An | Collater.al 1

Minju An is an illustrator born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. She moved to New York to study at the School of Visual Arts and now she creating seemingly playful and innocent illustrations inspired by comic books and cartoons of her childhood, but they hide a deeper and more reflexive side.

Her works, based on fantastic stories and characters, touch through eccentric deep psychological and social themes such as suicide, sexuality, or human relationships. At the base of her work there is always a marked sense of humor, often direct and provocative.

For Minju An, the world of illustration has no limit, on the contrary it allows to communicate serious content in a simple and funny way, inviting people to reflect on life and society without ever losing that innocent sense of childhood wonder.
