Hoang Giang was born in Dalat, a small highland city in Vietnam before moving to Ho Chi Minh City to pursue a career in illustration.
Hoang describes that "back then, there was almost no definition for such a career; working as a freelance illustrator equalled to unemployment, at least that was my parents point of view." She was a self-taught illustrator until she found herself lost in the middle of nowhere which is basically called an ‘art block’. She took a break, spending a year in Cambridge, UK in 2016 to study MA Illustration and book arts. This course helped her a lot. Hoang gradually found her voice, not only as an illustrator but also as a storyteller. Her strength is that she always has fun while working. She tends to make the characters as lively as possible because to her, after all, the story belongs to the characters themselves.Hoang Giang was born in Dalat, a small highland city in Vietnam before moving to Ho Chi Minh City to pursue a career in illustration....show full bio
