Hedy Tjin is an Amsterdam-based illustration designer. Since graduating from the Academy of Arts in Utrecht, her work has developed a trademark recognisability. Whether it’s murals, textile prints, illustrated books or a newspaper cover, Hedy is known for diverse expressions where her signature form stays constant; powerful colours expressing topics of societal value. Driven by a desire to use her work as a vehicle for inclusivity and openness, her vivid and radiant visuals aim to invite the audience to explore complex subjects in an inviting and new way. Combining an aesthetic that’s alluring yet also highlighting important underlying messages is the ultimate goal to her. The influence of cultural and ethnic issues is very much at the core of Hedy’s work, bearing strong references to the times spent in her fatherland Suriname.
