Bruce Tsai-Meu-Chong (1983)

Illustrator, Handletterer and Signpainter based in Rotterdam. Making free and commissioned work from handpainted menu’s and storefronts to big murals and paintings. As long as it’s handmade, with respect for traditions and craft. Sometimes it means a lot, sometimes it’s just for fun and sometimes it means absolutely nothing.

Besides the commercial side, my free work is at least as important. Doing my job gives me a way to translate the beautiful, tragic, stupid and aggravating things I notice on the web, the television and closeby. The work you saw or will see is analog, this because of the love I cherish for lines and textures.

I’ve been in several exhibitions the last few years, in different places in The Netherlands and some abroad.

I’m open for commissioned jobs, exhibitions. Just contact me.
