Poster House occasionally partners with local artists to get individual, fresh takes on an exhibition. Join Chinese artist Dingding Hu as she guides guests through The Sleeping Giant, speaking about how these historic Chinese posters relate to her work today. This is a unique opportunity to interact with Dingding in an intimate setting and discuss the storied history of Chinese art, and how it influences her work.
Dingding Hu is a New York based illustrator. She loves drawing characters and making stories. Dingding specializes in documenting daily life in a simplified, modern digital style and presenting it with little surprises and humor. Inspired by decorative art, natural ingredients, as well as observation of people and animals, Dingding aims to use illustration to reveal the daily extraordinary as well as delight and inspire her audience. She has designed stickers for Google Allo, illustrated public art for the Department of Transportation NYC and Museum of Chinese in America, as well as created editorial illustration for the New York Times, among others.
