Hi there! My name is Eliane Yeung (Eli Yeung). I am a multimedia artist born in the suburbs of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

My parents are from Hong Kong and Guangdong. I

currently live in New York City. I work with short video animations, stories, performances, and illustrations. My

work is influenced by my experiences navigating three different cultures.

I hold a bachelor's degree in Advertising and Marketing communication from the Fashion Institute of Technology.

I am interested in history, culture, sociology and the

human psyche

Oi Gente! Meu nome é Eliane Yeung (Eli Yeung). Eu nasci 

e cresci no interior de São Paulo. Eu sou a primeira geração  da minha família nascida no Brasil e com ensino superior. Meus pais são imigrantes de Hong Kong e Guangdong. Atualmente eu moro em Nova York. Eu trabalho com animações, ilustrações e outras artes. Meus trabalhos são influenciados pelas minhas experiências navegando três culturas diferentes, imigração, língua e identidade.

 

Eu sou formada em Propaganda, Marketing e Comunicação pela Fashion Institute of Technology.  Tenho interesse em todo tipo de expressão humana, historia, cultura e também em tópicos sociais e do psíquico humano.
