by Kate Barnett in New Illustration on Monday 13 October 2008

Emily Eldridge is originally from the United States, where she studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Based in Hong Kong for the past three years, she takes inspiration from the oddities and unique aspects of Asian culture and history around her. She incorporates her personal experiences and world travels into her lighthearted, colourful and feminine pieces.  Her work has since been featured in Canada’s Applied Arts magazine, the book Girlology: A Girl’s Guide to Stuff that Matters and can be found on walls in both Hong Kong and Rome. She uses Hong Kong and her travels around the world as a major source of inspiration for her work, injecting elements of urban life into her paintings, sculptures, installations, murals, and graphic designs. With a highly anticipated new gallery show it’s worth regularly checking her blog for artist updates.
