What’s On Your Wall?: James Yang, Illustrator

Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the studio walls of the artists who inspire us.
Illustrator James Yang has a knack for translating complex, ambiguous, and sometimes downright abstract ideas from publications like The New York Times and Scientific American into beautiful works of art. With a bold color palette and stunningly minimalist shapes, James’ work probably looks familiar to you for a good reason – he’s been published in just about every magazine you can think of. Take a peek into the illustrator’s Brooklyn studio below:
