I'm Ye Xu, a visual designer from China, currently studying at AKV St.joost in the Netherlands. As an animator, illustrator, graphic and motion designer, I am still training myself to tell the stories of life better.
Growing up in the mountains, I always see myself, including my work, as part of the forest.
Like many other rural villages, people here inhabit themselves within the nature with other creatures, benefitting and respecting each other. It is where my world view originally came from. My further experience — including my education of science and literature, and living experience in modern cities domestically and abroad — all together makes me understand the value deeper:
Everything has to follow its natural being, and every being is beautiful for its uniqueness.
