Artist statement:
Amy Brereton’s illustrations present the world’s tender duality – a harmonious balance of simultaneous luminescence and sorrow. Thematically, her work focuses on dark surrealism and often has a morbid sense of humor. She believes in the de-stigmatization of mental illness. She aims to educate with her practice and emphasize that the act of creating is a therapeutic experience. Aesthetically, Amy’s work is inspired by low-brow comics, anime, and tattoo flash. In 2019 Amy graduated from Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada with a bachelors in illustration. She currently resides in Tokyo, Japan and works as both an instructor and illustrator.
