Jane Lee (a.k.a. Messy Desk) (Left)
Jane Lee, a.k.a. Messy Desk, is an up-and-coming illustrator and comic artist based in Hong Kong. She holds a Higher Diploma in Graphic Information Design from the Hong Kong Design Institute and is an awardee of international scholarship for advanced studies at L'Institut d'Etudes Supérieures des Arts in Paris. She is also a member of the Japan Illustrators' Association and the Hong Kong Society of Illustrators.
 
Jane has a special bond with France and has a similar comic drawing style to the European comics, Bande Dessiné. She has been invited by the French publisher, Na Editions, to attend the second biggest comic festival, Angoulême International Comics Festival, and was named Concours Jeunes Talent. She has also been recognised by the French arts magazine Get Freaky, and held exhibitions in France, America, the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland and other places in Europe.
 
In August 2015, Jane was invited by Urban Forms to create a mural in Poland. In 2016, she won the first runner-up of the Best Illustration (Advertising) at the Fourth Greater China Illustration Awards, and the Winning Work Prize at the JIA Illustration Award.
 
Jay Lee (Right)
Growing up in Hong Kong, Jay received her master degree in Studio Arts & Extended Media from the Hong Kong Baptist University in 2013 and graduated with the Grand Prize (The AVA Award). She also holds an undergraduate degree in Public Arts from Cheung Kong School of Arts & Design.
 
Jay works as an artist/designer for commercial commissions, specialising in creating large-scale, custom-made artworks. Taking a customised approach, Jay studies each project's background carefully and explores the scale and form of materials in details to make sure her work fits the spatial context. She is also intensively involved in the conceptualisation, design to production and final installation. Jay believes art and space are interdependent, this relationship will leave a mark in audience's lives as time goes by.
