I Chao Wang makes toys for adults that seek to lift them out of the mundaneness of the day to day

As a designer, I Chao Wang relies on a few principles close to his heart. He vehemently swears by the idea of character abstractions, pulling from this in order to create works of art, which appear distant at first but feel familiar in the end. Wang designs with negative space and simplicity in mind. He wants the viewer to create their own interpretation of his art, and he purposefully adds interactive elements when designing.

By combining Eastern and Western art aesthetics, Wang creates surreal and inimitable pieces that leave the viewer in a state of reverence. A diverse skill pallet allows him to succeed both as an illustrator and graphic artist. Inspired by character abstractions, this artist thrives on instilling negative space into his work, all while keeping them simple so as to comfort the viewer. Wang’s art invites us on a journey that moves from a philosophical to whimsical experience.
