Mellopoly reflects the creative, whimsical side of emerging illustrator Melissa Lui Yuen.
Through Mellopoly, Melissa brings to life a beautifully rendered imaginative world, stirred by her observations of patterns and the spiritual elements of life. Inspired by thought provoking quotes, her illustrations are marked with rhythmic, meditative lines that create her own visual poetry.
With no formal training in art or design, Melissa has developed her whimsical illustration style through observation, experimentation and practice. Melissa seeks beauty in everyday life and nurtures a sense of curiosity about the world around her. She has a love for the tactile nature of illustrating with ink on water colour paper and delights in the uncertainty and adventure of the creative process.
"I feel more connected to the work when I am drawing with my hands, and I think there is an endearing appeal to the wobbly, imperfect hand drawn line."
Melissa Lui Yuen is an emerging illustrator based in Perth, Western Australia.
