An illustration series created by Yukai Du as a Study of Ancient Towns in China.

Yukai Du is an illustrator and motion designer originally from China who currently lives and works in the UK. As a personal project, she has created an illustration series as a study of ancient towns in China.

“Originally from China, I was sent to learn Chinese painting when I was 4. The fineness of Chinese painting was something I could not appreciate at that age. After I moved to London and established my career as an illustrator and animator, I went to Beijing to visit where my grandfather grew up. It brought back my memory of the buildings and landscapes I used to see in Chinese paintings. Therefore, the personal project is for me to find a way to depict some Chinese historic locations with a combination of Chinese painting elements and my ‘modernized’ illustration style.” — Yukai Du
