bcnyArt's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Hi, my name is Han-Yuan "B.c.N.y. " Yu, you can also call me Han as well.

I’m a freelance illustrator from Taiwan and had a MFA in Illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. My favorite subject is beautiful girls in aboriginal costumes. I want to create compelling illustrations by using brilliant colors, interesting compositions, and dynamic gestures. Also, my work focuses on storytelling; I want my audience to enjoy my work on a deeper level and to discover meanings beneath the beautiful exterior. I’m influenced by anime, classical painting, and Chinese culture, but I try not to limit myself when drawing. I’d like to share my drawing experience by teaching students. My work has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. I hope my artwork can share my happiness.

The Ocean Whisperer

Ocean is the origination of Life which has been worshiped and awed by people from the very beginning of the history of human beings. Individual Ocean like a supreme spirit who owns a different character and charm. I often imagine that if a person is able to communicate to ocean, he or she shall be called The Ocean Whisperer.


In this painting, inside the embrace of Mother Nature, an ocean whisperer is floating under the sea with ocean creatures. She is enjoying her time among them and listening to how their feelings are.


There were many changes being made during the process of the creation of this artwork. Particularly for this one, I wanted to seize the instant moment of waves scrolling. Moreover, finding a balance among performance of art, storytelling and decorative function. The theme of the artwork had been shifted back and forth from fighting fish to the others, finally becoming the result you see. Besides just creating a beautiful artwork, I tried to include some symbols of Taiwanese elements, such as her dress and the ocean creatures are common to be seen around Taiwan Ocean. Furthermore, reminding us to think about the issue of environmental protection.


Hope you enjoy the artwork, you could find the previous progress of this one by the following link:…

The Saturated Palette, Agora Galley presented, is opening from March 10th to 30th In New York City!

This is my first exhibition in Chelsea galleries area. I am so excited to explore the possibilities of my art in The Big Apple!

I believe my artwork can be a brand-new style of art. As an artist coming from Taiwan, a subtropical island with multiple historical integrations in the past, complexity is in my blood. My artwork is a combination of manga art and academic oil painting, with folklore atmosphere. Each painting is layered with delicate ornaments and vibrant colors. At its theme, my work usually centers around Taiwanese aboriginal culture, one that I feel expresses everything I would like to achieve in my paintings.

Welcome to visit the opening reception on March 16th! There will be various artworks brought by other talented artists! 
And forward this information to your friends who might be interested!

Year-end Party

We're used to have a year-end party before the Chinese New Year for celebrating employees' hard working during the year.  I'd invited to a wonderful year-end party tonight. How do you think about yours?
