Feizue MeiFeixue Mei, a designer/illustrator/artist from China based in the US, questions social norms through cultural production. She is particularly intrigued by the influence of social media, online platforms, and shared spaces on individuals’ cultural identities and their potential to facilitate community building and share the voices of marginalized groups. She creates conceptual, iconic imagery, and rich narrative details. Internet culture, animation, comics, Surrealism, and Chinese folk decorative art are among the influences that shaped her intricate style.

Cultures and visuals migrate and go across geographical boundaries through the internet and social media. Fluid identity, otherness, mistranslation, displacement, and the struggle to find one’s own community are important parts of her practice. By using adaptation, appropriation, and reproduction, She frees symbols and visuals from their original contexts and puts them into new narratives. She makes the familiar become unfamiliar and open to various interpretations and meanings. With a strong desire to communicate,

She believes in Maximalism – the philosophy of “more is more.” Information is overloaded on the internet, and we have many identities online and offline. Those identities and labels interact, struggle and fight with others and finally tell who we are.
