朋友叫她Von 或 芳(寫作艸方),台中人。 畢業於英國愛丁堡藝術學院(ECA)插畫碩士 (MFA)、台灣師大設計研究所設計碩士、國立政治大學廣播電視學系。

插畫作品曾入選 2018 葡萄牙ILUSTRARTE插畫雙年展,以及2016台北詩歌節佳作。 2016-17年英國愛丁堡大學商學院年度慈善活動連續兩年合作藝術家,2019年王道銀行堤頂之星計畫獲選藝術家。

她的視覺語言看似溫暖可愛,內容卻蘊含濃厚的思念和憂傷。喜愛圖像詩的她,也喜歡在畫面中加入繁體中文字的解構意象或象徵物件,像經營一齣情感細膩的小劇場(例1 , 2),期望帶給人有層次的溫度與內涵。

出版過童書,作品見於期刊和影片等媒體,曾舉辦插畫workshop,2019年起也開始投身插畫藝術教育。2006-2016年參與「文化尋根.建構台灣美術百年史」系列展覽的影片製作。2008-2010年參與美國星際大戰電視影集製作團隊。

YiVon Cheng

YiVon Cheng is an illustrator, animator, designer and art educator. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in Illustration MFA. She grew up in Taichung City, Taiwan.

Her visual language is mixed with childlike and dreamy scenes but also subtly
nostalgic and melancholic. Inspired by concrete poetry like Havel's Antikódy, Cheng transforms and deconstructs Traditional Chinese characters into visual elements in her works.(example1 , 2) In this way, she values and preserves this precious handwritten form as nowadays it's only used in Taiwan where she comes from.

Her illustrations were shortlisted in ILUSTRARTE 2018. In 2016, her illustration and poem received an honourable mention at the Taipei Poetry Festival. Her animation 'The Thin Moon' was nominated both for the International Student Film and Video Festival of Beijing Film Academy (ISFVF) and the International Student Film Golden Lion Award in Taipei in 2005.
