Our very first Branches Art Market at Tacheles featured some very talented creatives, check out our interviews with the artists below.
The Volcano Store
Yuda and Yoki established The Volcano Store in Taipei. Both graduating with a degree in graphic design; they now focus on zine publishing and making pottery art. Their works are simple and cute, with humorous silliness which sometimes they mix with some delightful shyness.
An Chen is an illustrator that enjoys creating vector geometric shapes and toy subjects with a hint of a vintage feeling. She graduated from Cambridge School of Art, with her work appearing widely in magazines and books.
The VeganSoap Bar produces handmade, high-quality soap, shampoos and conditioning bars. All of their products contain ingredients that have not been tested on animals and are palm oil free, in addition they donate their proceeds to stray dog rescue groups.
Kitty Unicorn is a Taiwanese street and caricature artist that is currently completing an artist residency in Taichung. Her creations are drawn on different types of materials; from paper to fabric, wood, plastic, glass or even on her iPad. She is not merely a cartoonist, she's an artist with a unique style and eye for detail. She is interested in understanding people’s souls and then draws from that interaction. She doesn’t just simply sketch how people look, but enjoys having conversations and playing psychological games to then customise and create special caricatures using different styles and materials.
