    Inca Pan: Strangers in a Strange Land

Let Inca Pan's exquisite illustrations transport you into a strange land

Posted by James Cartwright,

Taiwanese illustrator Inca Pan creates magnificent imaginary landscapes in sensitively coloured layers of gouache and ink. His influence seems to come almost entirely from the natural world, with lush vegetation featuring heavily throughout his portfolio and the odd flourish of eastern mythology thrown in for good measure. In spite of this fairly whimsical and delicate approach to illustration, Inca regularly produces editorial work for hard-hitting Taiwanese newspapers. This unusual pairing of current affairs and timeless imagery leads to some incredibly interesting results, the likes of which you’d be pleasantly surprised to see within the western press.
