New York-based illustrator Jinhwa Jang collects powerful memories from her past and recreates them through illustration. Drawing on her experiences of growing up in South Korea, Shanghai and now New York, Jinhwa recalls one particularly poignant memory that continues to inspire her creative practice today. “Once me and my family went out for an evening drive to Waitan in Shanghai. It was unusual to go downtown that late at night and I gazed at the city’s view in the night.” She recalls how “it was a perfect moment that made me forget all my cares.” To this day, the illustrator draws on this memory in her illustrations to “celebrate such a moment”.
