Lydia Meiying: First Step
19 May – 15 September 2012
Lydia Meiying is an Illustrator and Surface Pattern Designer. She works freelance, designing patterns and graphics for fashion, interiors, stationary, and trend forecasting. Her practice involves creating bright and bold designs using a mixture of hand drawing and CAD (computer-aided design). She is drawn to nature as inspiration and representation for her work, with animal and plant imagery being key elements to all of her designs. In this, Meiying’s approach of fusing traditional and modern is mirrored in her output of representing traditional subject matter in a contemporary manner by using vibrant colours.
