Anyone with a sense of adventure and childlike wonder will fall in love with these Qian Yi illustrations. After all, who doesn’t want to live vicariously through her images as a traveler exploring whimsically colored locales straight out of a kid’s imagination? But what’s even more impressive about Qian Yi’s work is her distinctive visual style.

Coming from an Asian background, Qian Yi has adopted a Taoism minimalist painting style for her work. However, she’s augmented the traditional way of rendering with contemporary digital art techniques. As such, she her images have a familiar, yet refreshing feel while combining the best of old and new visuals.

You’ll also notice the eclectic mishmash of old and new in her subjects’ apparel and in the scenery.
