Qieer Wang ( pronounced Chiarr Wawng) is a Chinese visual artist residing in Brooklyn, New York. She works in the fields of animation filmmaking, editorial illustration and interactive media approaches. 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 visual languages, with her mentor Dr. Karan Kverno, professor 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.
