Sashiko Yuen, aka Wishcandy, creates art that is as sweet as it is fierce. In candy-coated colours, her illustrations are yummy sugary portraits of girls gone bad. Tough in look and subject matter, she sweetens the canvas with her use of poppy pastels and innocent neutrals. Although I would to have her works hanging in my studio, I would not want to be in stuck in a dark alley with any of her subjects.
