Clara Yee

Clara is from Singapore and studied at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. Intrigued by the world of visuals, she began illustrating since young, drawing bright-eyed girls scrubbing their faces clean for Johnson&Johnson. She has since grown to experimenting and collaborating in diverse fields, ranging from fashion prints to weaving spatial interventions and stage design, using multiple disciplines as mediums for storytelling.

As a nomadic creative agent, Clara has worked with Alexander McQueen, Warner Music, Barbican London, and NPTD amongst others and exhibited in Mexico City, London and Taiwan. She recently art directed an experiential traveling art and design showcase Singapore: Inside Out that toured Beijing, London, New York and Singapore, organized by Singapore Tourism Board.

Her works have garnered media accolade from the likes of Rolling Stones (Mexico), AppleDaily (Taiwan), Ming Pao Daily (HongKong), DigitalArts (UK), HESA (Helsinki), The Business Times, Style, Home & Decor and LianHeZhaoBao, The Straits Times’ 30 under 30, and NuYou’s Next Big Things.

She is a Forbes Asia inaugural 30 under 30 honouree and co-founder of nomadic creative house – in the wild.

Zu Orzu

Born and raised in Singapore, Zu Orzu has recently completed her graduate studies in animation design and visual development. Her carefully developed style stems from her experiences as a traditional painter, photographer, and digital artist. She has worked professionally in animation and film production, concept art, game design, art education and workshops, illustration, and commercial photography.

Orzu's creative foray began with oil painting and traditional drawing. In recent years, she started working with digital media, employing her formal art training and continued interest in traditional aesthetics while developing her mixed media and digital experiments.

Currently, Orzu is co-authoring a book on film and animation design, to be published later this year. She also plans to focus more on her personal art and launch an album of her painted and written works.
