Qieer Wang ( pronounced Chiarr Wawng) is a Chinese multimedia artist residing in New York, she's part of Brooklyn Arts Studios located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She works in the fields of GIF looping, animation filmmaking, editorial illustration and interactive media approaches. Her clients are including New Yorker, NPR, spotify, Lenny Letter, POLITICO, NYT and many other publishers. She talks at SVA and AIGA conference, and gets featured on creator projector(vice).
Her distorted spiritual creatures capture waves of irrational emotion through their tangled outlines and exotic postures. She sees her surroundings as an imitation of her visions while the moment of the mood swings captures her nerves.
Besides commission works, she devotes most of her time into mental health themes and is working to develop a virtual environmental treatment with her motion work, with her mentor at Johns Hopkins University.
She also collaborates with talents from different industries, such as sound designers, tech engineers...etc, and is committed to artistic exploration. Please feel free to reach out.
