Messy Msxi

Comments Off on Messy MsxiIllustration


Illustrator artist Messy Msxi was born in Singapore but studied at Central Saint Martins, London. She has recently completed a series of illustrations for an exhibition titled ‘Ten Years Of Work For Every Minute On Stage’ which you can see at her site.

Here is a brief excerpt from Msxi on her impetus for the imagery in the show:

“This series is an outright documentation of: failure, process, training, preparing, suffering, bruising, not giving up and a toast to “the beginner’s spirit”. It serves as a reminder that success never comes easy and its the journey that builds character. It is a series seeking to encourage all who are in difficulty, to remind everyone who trudge the tough road that it will be worth it in the end.”

Charlene Chua, that’s ‘choo-wah’ to you, was raised in Singapore and began working first as a web designer in 1998. From there she worked for some very large agencies but decided to pursue illustration in 2003 and taking the full time leap in 2006. It’s a good thing she did because she is very good at what she does.
