Trash is treasure for American-born artist Emily Eldridge, who reinvents cardboard boxes and rubbish materials as the canvas for her quirky illustrations, which feature a cast of stylishly-coiffed, fashionable figures; curvaceous lines, and pops of bold color. Originally from Michigan, United States, Emily attended the Savannah College of Art & Design, where she graduated with a BFA in Illustration in 2004. Based in Hong Kong since 2005, Emily spends her days making art with students and her nights and weekends as an aspiring fine artist, muralist, and illustrator.
Active in the Hong Kong and international art scenes, Emily has exhibited in Hong Kong, China, the United States, and Australia. Her work has been featured in numerous publications including Art Asia Pacific, Asia Tatler, WestEast Magazine, HK Magazine, WGSN, and TimeOut Hong Kong, among others. Additional collaborations include window displays with cutting-edge department store Lane Crawford and murals around the world.
