"Klara and The Sun"

by Lia Liao

This series of illustrations are inspired by Kazuo Ishiguro’s latest novel Klara and The Sun, a heartbreaking story of an artificial intelligence who is pure and innocent in a way you can hardly imagine from any real human being.

Literature and films are the major inspiration of not only my artworks but crucially shape who I am. Before starting my career as an illustrator, I was educated as a psychologist until 2020. I  had always been a massive fan of films and literature, enjoying watching and reading them worldwide. I used to write reviews for them and constantly felt translations between different languages can make biased towards the original meaning. Languages can be tricky, illustrations tell what I feel sincerely.
