Andrea Wan just unveiled a new series of pieces for her solo exhibition entitled "Fakelore" for Pictoplasma Berlin 2013. Wan's illustrations have been featured in numerous publications and commissioned by a range of different companies including Lululemon, The New York Times and NUVO Magazine. This series detailes a strange, whimsical journey of imagined creatures through a jungle-like landscape, encountering ghosts, cacti, disembodied head-girl-tepees and the occasional sloth using a laptop. Wan combines a storybook aesthetic with strange combinations of animals and plants to create a "Fakelore" of imagined stories for a strange age of storytelling.
