Yi Pei Loh explores a range of artistic styles and expression to tell stories visually. Imaginary cityscapes, fairy tales and fictional landscapes are his subject matters. Strangeness, playfulness and dark humour are his elements. Through depictions of the unreal, he explores real feelings and emotions. He invites viewers to place themselves in his enchanting landscapes and generate their own stories.
