As Uxua founder Wilbert Das rose to success as a Creative Director in the fashion industry, he never forgot his art school roots, making a habit of supporting emerging talents as collaborators.
The fresh style of 23-year-old Joey Yu's fashion illustration recently came onto Wilbert's radar and led to a spontaneous collaboration, with Joey living with the Uxua family a month while capturing scenes of daily life in Trancoso. The collection of drawings reveal a fantasy version of what is already a tropical fantasy, an ultra paradise of color and lushness.
A few of Joey's illustrations were turned into a remarkable Uxua Artist Canvas.
