Yap Kun Rong

Yap Kun Rong, concept art and illustration
Yap Kun Rong is a concept artist and illustrator originally from Singapore and currently living and working in Tokyo, Japan.

His credits in the gaming industry include Metal Gear Rising, Wonderful 101, and Bayonetta 2. He has also worked in comics for companies like Avalon Studios and Radical Publishing.

I particularly like his choice of color palettes, sometimes muted, but often in a wide range of high-chroma hues. He also has a nicely imaginative touch with the freeform shapes in his environments, and a knack for juxtaposing organic and mechanical forms with an eye to their contrasting textures.

There is a brief interview with the artist on It’s Art.
