Hello! My name is Brian Jiang (he/him/they/their) and I am a Toronto-based freelance artist and illustrator. I grew up in the suburbs of the Greater Toronto Area. My childhood consisted of tough loving parents, the aroma of home-cooked Chinese meals, and finding joy in drawing mediocre pictures.
Today, I continue to feel immense joy in creating images and paintings. My work is informed by my love of discordant yet satisfying colour combinations, the balance between gestural forms and intricate details, folk art, and analogue media. In my spare time, I am ̶g̶r̶u̶d̶g̶i̶n̶g̶l̶y̶ lovingly cleaning up after my feline familiar.
