Velwyn Yossy


Location: London

Velwyn is a multidisciplinary artist, painter and fashion illustrator with a fascination of culture, psychology and identity. She creates artworks and experimental projects that blur the boundaries between art, design and fashion. Many of her projects are concept-driven, characterized by playful experimentation as well as exaggeration of forms and lines both in traditional and digital medium.

Born in South Sumatra, Indonesia and spent her early years in Jakarta, she moved to Los Angeles and more recently, to London. After graduating from Art Center College of Design (B.S Honors) in 2012, she has collaborated with Instagram in a cover feature, CNN Style, SHOWstudio and her works have been featured in, amongst others, The Daily Telegraph, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, AnOther Loves, DASH, LOVE magazine and Tumblr radar.

She is currently exploring the possibilities of paint, in a project entitled "Dolls and Identity" for future exhibitions and working as a private tutor and an associate lecturer at London College of Fashion.
