According to Kevin Chu (b. 1988), dragons are always smiling, as are vultures, while penguins are happy to offer a tired swimmer a lift across the sea. A glance at his artwork confirms this enthusiastic and vibrant worldview.
The narrative that can be read throughout his work is reflected in his calm, sensitive demeanor. Chu’s bold line and lively palette animate the pieces and link the joy felt in their content to his process. Like a wish for friendship and understanding, Chu’s artistic vision is earnest and motivated by the need for connection between all life-forms, regardless of species.
Creative Rescue, an organization that partners non-profit arts institutions with animal resue organizations, chose one of Kevin Chu's drawings to adorn their dog first-aid kit.Print Bio
