Bridging the Gap: New Illustrations from Victo Ngai

The lovely illustrations of Victo Ngai bridge the gap between classic chinese art and modern publishing in the western world. Perhaps that’s because her life has bridged that gap as well. Born in Hong Kong and now residing in New York, as she puts it “‘Victo’ is not a boy nor a typo, but a nickname derived from Victoria – a leftover from the British colonization.”


We’ve covered Ngai’s highly detailed work before on Visual News, but in the interim she has continued to polish her craft, bringing even more perfection to what is a highly unique style for the pages of the periodicals her works often grace. She’s been commissioned by everyone from The New Yorker and The New York Times, to McDonald’s and Adidas. It’s so nice to see such artistic work being featured alongside articles and ads of this stature. See more of her work at
