Synopsis

One of the most celebrated and influential comic book artists in all of Asia, Chen Uen drew influence from Chinese ink and western-style painting, wuxia films, and the world around him. He crafted a signature style, one that he adapted across art forms including video games and puppet shows. A series of emotional interviews are combined with a stunning visual showcase of his work to present an intimate portrait of a monumental talent, his evolution across different media, and his enduring legacy.
