Nuomi is considered one of the few Taiwanese illustrators capable of seamlessly combining the expressiveness of space with illustration.
He uses realistic landscapes as the backdrop in his stories, allowing readers to see from his unique perspective. The changing horizon and tumbling topography create a cinematic effect, giving the story an unparalleled warmth and rich feeling.
As a creator, Nuomi sees Taiwan as an island that has many tourists spots and a country that is deeply valued by its government as well as people. Nuomi wishes to repackage local cultural characteristics by narrating a story; by lifting history from its innate mundaneness, he seeks to inspires people’s interest in it.
A new story is like a catalyst that facilitates understanding of the former one. Nuomi narrates the story of Taiwan with his powerful and poetic brush, in the hopes that more will come to know its meaning. Following this ideal, Nuomi’s most representative work, Traveler’s Island, brings readers to the beautiful island of Taiwan through characters such as Cat Boss and A-Fu.
This illustrated story will take you to a world of most sincere sentiments, allowing you to feel its unique local atmosphere and be immersed in its imaginative story.
