Despite her young age, Berlin-based artist Andrea Wan has already lived a very cosmopolitan life. Born in Hong Kong in 1985, she moved to Vancouver at the age of 10 where she grew up in a completely different culture. Upon graduating with a major in film studies, she decided to go to Europe to study half a year longer in design and illustration in Denmark. During this time she also started experimenting a lot, which made her grow as an artist and let her develop her distinguished, surreal style. In 2012, Wan decided to make Berlin her home base from where she still continues to travel a lot. The content of her art also correlates with the idea of a perpetual change and that even identity is not necessarily a permanent thing.
