“These screenprints are developed from drawings in pastel made out of doors. The translation into a new medium is the thrill, like seeing your children grow up in ways you could not anticipate.”
Belinda Chen is the creator of Bel’s art world. She is a freelance illustrator, printmaker and book artist based in East London.
Her passion for drawing and art began from a very early age. Growing up in a small family run ceramic factory in North Taiwan. Belinda imagined the factory as a giant playground. It has inspired her to create from childhood striving to create dream-like utopia to be enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages.
Her work normally appears in children’s story books, editorials, textiles and stationery.
