Ursula Kam-Ling Cheng is a Northern-Irish born Scottish based illustrator and visual live drawing media artist.
Fantasy, surreal realities and dreamy nostalgia absorb into her intricate, riotous ink drawings. Playful candy and neon colours fuse into her unique overwhelmed images, which often focus on female anthropomorphic figures taking central subject in these worlds.
Travel sketchbooks and personal diaries play an important role in Ursula’s image making process, with an ongoing pursuit to find innovative ways to depict her experiences through her illustration work.
Broad influences from street art, folkloric history, music, ancient relics, religious artworks, childhood memories spent in Hong Kong, escapist American television and Asian comics all collide into two-dimensional linework that presents a conversation on the hyper-real future, social ideals and expectations of the female individual.
