Wenting Li is an illustrator & recent OCAD graduate working out of Toronto. She also makes masks and comics and spends too much time reading.
My work is narrative based, and pursues lyricism and metaphor and diversity in representation. I’m fascinated by the intersection of language and image, analogue and digital, the mundane and the unfamiliar. I do a lot of drawing from life, trying to capture and reconfigure the expressive potential of the human body. Drawing feels like a natural extension how I think through a problem so making a lot of sketches feels essential when planning out a work. And I carry my sketchbook everywhere – on my commute, while waiting, while I go about my life. There is always something interesting happening in the everyday, to note down and incubate for later.
