London based illustrator Joey You and her vibrant urban scenes

Joey Yu Captures Life in Full Colour

30th April 2019

I’m loving the work of London-based illustrator, animator and artist Joey Yu. There is a real sense of movement in her artworks, she handles perspective brilliantly and boldly expresses her scenes in wonderfully saturated colour schemes.

You get the impression most of Yu’s drawings are off the cuff as it were, people watching or chilling with friends. I especially love how angular her work is, building the scene with minimal use of line and managing to fill her page with such dynamism.
