I am always fascinated by light. We can see it yet it is intangible. Being one of the most universal symbols, light often symbolizes life, hope, and intelligence. But I have been exploring the other sides of light: one of the most obscure, mysterious and quirky things in nature.

As an illustrator, I now make my childhood imagination come to life by creating these surreal illustrations. They are fun and playful! I hope you get inspired by these electromagnetic radiations!

Come see more of my work on my website and Instagram!
