ANDREA WAN INTERVIEW

 

Booooooom x Poketo Afterlife Series Interview with artist Andrea Wan

Hello Andrea, where are you right now?

I’m sitting in front of my glowing rectangle at my semi-messy desk.

You and I both got our degrees studying film at Emily Carr and I’m doing nothing film related at the moment, do you have plans to make a film? Maybe an animation?

I don’t have plans to make a film at the moment but I’m open to working with all kinds of mediums and projects. I have a lot of respect for filmmakers, because I understand how difficult and time consuming it can be. Making another animated film would be fun, but it would be even nicer if I have someone to help me on the actual animation part!

I loved that animation you made in school! I guess I asked because when I look at your drawings now I like to imagine what sounds would accompany them.

I’ve never heard anyone say that about my drawings before but that’s an interesting way to look at it! I think if my characters have sounds they’d whisper… with their voices overpowered by the sound of the landscapes.

Booooooom x Poketo

It’s been hard to keep this a secret, but it is a secret no more! I have joined forces with my friends at Poketo to release a collection of wallets designed by four Canadian artists!

Booooooom x Poketo collaboration Afterlife Wallet Series

Several months ago I asked Andrea Wan, Winnie Truong, Josh Holinaty, and Howie Tsui to each create images based on their interpretation of the “After Life”. What happens to us after we die?

Over the next couple weeks I will be posting an interview with each artist to give you some more insight into their work and will end each interview by giving away one of our wallets!

If you’d like to purchase a wallet (or four) jump over here.

Take a closer look at the wallets below!
