I am Nien
I am Nien is an Amsterdam based creator who mostly paints and illustrates. Her work has two very different styles. When she paints it’s mostly dreamy girls in soft and surrealistic worlds. And when she illustrates, there is more silliness and play, and the coloring is digital. I am Nien loves both sides and doesn’t want te to let go of either of them, so she decided to just let them co-exist.
Her inspiration often comes very subconsciously, and her mind just makes random connections that turn into images. First, she thought everyone’s brain worked like that. Now that she knows it doesn’t she is very grateful her brain does.
