Studio Visit: Ping Zhu

Colorful, playful, energetic, not to mention the mature technique and elegance; the illustrations by Ping Zhu have an impressive, almost-magical charm that can resonates with viewers’ inner hearts.

We paid a visit to Ping Zhu’s Studio in Greenpoint’s pencil factory, Brooklyn.

There, we talked about her creative process, drawing style, inspirations, and her journey from just getting started as an illustrator to making a name for herself in the industry.

During our visit, Ping Zhu randomly picked an aloe plant as a still life subject and finished an acrylic gouache painting from scratch.

For more information about Ping Zhu’s works, you can visit her website at, or you can follow her instagram @pingszoo.
