Sijia Ke is an illustrator and animator based in UK and China. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2013, before continuing her studies at the Royal College of Art.
'Aye' is her first project out of the RCA... and it's stunningly wonderful! It abstractly examines low self-esteem, self-loathing and the mental anguish that ensues, all told through beautifully hand-rendered animation in watercolour, charcoal and oil pastel.
"Loneliness occurs when someone is lost in himself. The one will try to find the lost part however the result may be disappointed. When people try to find the lost things to get stronger they may also find stronger powers which force them to abandon themselves even more." Sijia Ke
