Currently based in the UK, Branwen Bindra grew up in Cheung Sha and graduated at Discovery College before going on to study at Savannah College of Art & Design in the US. She has carried a sketchbook around since she was 13, and sketches from observation to create her powerful, detail-orientated illustrations. Working in charcoal and black gesso paint allows her to plan out the negative and positive spaces, and emphasise the subject matter.
Branwen returns to Hong Kong regularly to visit her father who still lives in Cheung Sha, and one of her most recent illustrations of South Lantau is pictured here. Branwen’s illustrations are available as NFTs on OpenSea @ branwenbindra, and she accepts commissions, email [email protected].
