插画师

My name is Emma, I’m a freelance illustrator based in Shanghai. My art is where I express my feelings and hopes. It’s below and before speech, and it is above and beyond my words. I paint a world I wish to explore.

我叫Emma,是一名自由插画家,现居上海。艺术是让我表达自己的感情和希望的方式,它超越语言,比说话更重要。我描绘的是一个我梦想探索的世界。

 

1. Favorite movie of all time? 有史以来你最喜欢的电影是哪一部?

Magnolia by Paul Thomas Anderson. It’s a great ensemble of characters and events that seems random but at the same time interconnected. Just like life itself. It’s also beautifully shot and edited. Although it’s 3 hours long, it’s an exhilarating emotional rollercoaster ride.

《木兰花》,由保罗·托马斯·安德森指导。这部电影结合了很棒的角色,他们碰到的事件看起来很随机,但观众后来发现所有的角色和一系列事件都互相连接的,和现实生活很相似。这是一部拍得很漂亮、剪辑得很美丽的电影。虽然时长达三个小时,但这是一次“令人兴奋的情绪过山车”。

 

2. Someone you would like to have dinner with? 想跟谁一起共进晚餐?

I would love to have dinner with the director Li An. He’s one of my favorite directors and I have always admired his work. His work has a unique mix of Eastern and western cultures. As an artist myself, when I was studying and working in the U.S., (I studied both art and film), I found it somewhat difficult to blend my Chinese philosophy with my work which is more modern and western, I would find inspiration from his films. So I would love to have dinner with him.

我很想和李安导演共进晚餐。他是我最喜欢的导演之一,我一直很欣赏他的作品,对我来说他的作品以独特的方式融合了东西方文化。当我在美国学习和工作的时候(我同时学习了艺术和电影制作),我比较倾向于创造更现代、跟西方文化相近的作品。作为这样的艺术家,我发现在自己的作品很难融化我的中国人的身份和哲学,但是我从李安的电影中找到灵感。

3. The best way to destress? 对你来说,最好的减压方式是什么?

Learning a new skill. I love learning and facing a challenge. It can be anything from playing an instrument to rock climbing. I find experiencing something new and challenging can take my mind of my problems instantly.

学习一项新技能。无论是演奏新的乐器或者攀岩,我喜欢学习新的东西和面对挑战。我发现,体验一些新的、具有挑战性的东西可以让我立刻忘记自己的困难。

4. Your favorite creative project you’ve ever worked on, and why you like it so much? 你曾经参与过的创意项目其中,那个是你最喜欢的项目;为什么你这么喜欢它?

It has to be my Play me I’m yours piano painting project. I have seen the painted pianos around the world and never thought I would be invited to paint not 1 but 2 of them. As a piano player myself, it really is my greatest pleasure to be able to paint my art onto the pianos and have them played by the public.

应该是Play me I’m yours钢琴绘画项目。我在世界各地看过这些画好的钢琴,从没想过我也会收到邀请参与这样的项目,更有机会可以绘画两架钢琴。作为一个钢琴爱好者,能够把我的艺术用画作体现在钢琴上,并可以让大众去弹奏,这实在是带给我极大的乐趣。

 

5. Creative person who inspires you? 谁是影响到你的创作的人?

Vincent Van Gogh, my favorite artist. His work and his thoughts moves me and inspires me, made me a better person and a better artist.

我最喜欢的艺术家 — 文森特·梵高。我感觉他的作品和想法总能够感动我,激励我,使我成为一个更好的人,一个更好的艺术家。

We invite each of the creatives we profile to tag another interesting person for the series. Emma suggested artist Banana.W王香蕉.
