Charis Loke

Illustrator in Petaling Jaya

Drawing to Document

PRESENTED ON JUL 27, 2019
IN PETALING JAYA @ VOL 10

The act of drawing is imbued with power: we draw to see, to record, to understand, to shape the world. Reflecting on her experiences documenting street protests, election rallies, and gatherings through on-site sketching, Charis Loke speaks about the importance of drawing - for anyone, everyone - as a way to bear witness and be in the world. 

Charis Loke is an illustrator and educator based in Penang. Drawing upon literature and visual culture, she evokes wonder and curiosity through stories. She's also Comics + Illustrations Editor at New Naratif where she commissions and works with Southeast Asian artists.

A former resident artist at Rimbun Dahan, Charis also makes illustrated microfiction inspired by SEA when she's not working on publishing or nonprofit projects. She designs geeky baju, sketched the 14th General Elections, and explained asexuality by way of sambal. Her work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles and shown at Light Grey Art Lab as well as other galleries around the world.
