Chang Sheng

Born in Taipei, 1968. Studied Western Painting at Fu-hsin Trade & Arts Show, and worked as creative director at Dentsu, Young and Rubicam, and has won numerous awards, including China Times Advertising Award, 4A Creative Awards, Creativity Awards, and New York Festival Advertising Awards.

In 2004, he gave up his 15-year career in advertisement, and dedicated himself to creating comics. As a child, Chang was a fan of Yukinobu Hoshino, father of Japanese science fiction comics, and his work has been very much inspired by him. He draws in realistic styles, illustrating science fiction and fantastic themes. He creates to “bring life to the fantasies in his mind.” Comic to him is organic and full of unlimited possibilities, and comic artists have persistent creative energy.

Chang Sheng now focuses on creating comics and illustrations, such as a 3D Alice in Wonderland Children’s Story Hall and covers for Apple electronics magazine. He’s been experimenting with oil painting, and has exhibited his work in Shanghai, China. He also worked with an art deco company, Between Creation & Art, to lift his oil painted Alice from the pages, and created 3D sculptures. He continues to explore the artistic possibilities in comic art. 

His work Stanle and X-Girl were serialized in Taiwan, and have been published in France and Italy. Chang Sheng is still actively producing new work, with OLDMAN serializing in Dongli’s bimonthly Dragon Youth.
