Momo Meng / Yun Meng

Concept Artist - Illustrator

ChinaGuangzhou, China


Imaginative, vibrant, massively detailed, they are the traits of Momo Meng's artwork. Momo loves observing the society, exploring the deep emotions of humans and animals, and capturing them in her art. She creates works to be the voice for the voiceless,the powerless, the hopeless, in order to fight against the absurd, the violence and inequalities. She wishes her creations could raise audience's awareness, be the standing point to fight for a better future, a better society which has variety, equality, a healthy environment, and respect for all living beings.

Photoshop and CorelDraw are Momo’s favorite tools. With an urban design background, her works are creative with a rigorous sense of spatial perspective. Momo holds a B.Eng. Urban Planning and Design from Sun Yat-sen University, Guangzhou City, China.

Artist Statement

Emotions are not like memories. Memories last, emotions fade away rapidly. You can easily recall images of a significant moment in your life, but you barely can experience the same emotion twice again. That’s why I capture emotions in my art, brightness or darkness, they all leave marks.

I wish you are the one who are willing to see the world through my eyes, and resonate with my emotions through my art. Thanks a lot for viewing ;)
