Originally from Singapore, Cassandra Yap is an artist and art director based in London. Her work often explores the juxtaposition between dark and beautiful subjects to create the surreal. Fuelled by her love of pin ups, the female form and an unhealthy obsession with vintage erotica, her photomontage halftone style images are dark, bold and humorous with a kinky edge.
Her work has been featured in a number of exhibitions including: Print Club Blisters Blackout ’10 & Blisters The Directors Cut '12, 3939 Shop pop up gallery at the Shop At Bluebird, The London Illustration Fair '13, Dalston Superstore, Somerset House, The Affordable Art Fair '14, a solo show at Laylow Art Gallery in Palma de Mallorca and Wall Street Gallery's Revolution group show in LA.
Commissions and collaborations include: Wonderland Magazine fashion story with photographer Jez Tozer, bespoke screen prints for East London Baker Lily Vanilli, British Jeweller Bobby White London and Dalston Screentests for Dalston Superstore. Limited edition T-shirt designs for Moussy Tokyo, Lui's Menswear Tokyo and Film 4 Summer Screens.
