張梓鈞  Tzu-Chun Chang

Chun is a Taiwanese illustrator and picturebook maker with an MA in Children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art and a BA in Motion picture from Taiwan University of Arts.

Her work is sensitive and tranquil, mainly focused on relationships and socio-political issues. She enjoys playing with metaphors and leaving space for people to interpret. She loves film, philosophy as well as nature and would love to do more book / editorial illustrations. Her aim is to capture the magic in the mundane and to tell stories about difficult subjects in an approachable way. 

Her debut author-illustrator picturebook Today is the Day, published in Taiwan in 2021, is selected for 2022 Bologna Ragazzi Award The BRAW Amazing Bookshelf.

 

 

畢業於臺藝大電影系及劍橋藝術學院童書插畫研究所,出生台中的自由插畫工作者、繪本創作者、講師。

 

喜歡電影、哲學、大自然。創作題材多圍繞在平凡日常裡人與他者的關係,善於在畫面中創造時間感與敘事性,並留出空間給觀者想像。

 

作品散見於國內外刊物,獲得波隆那兒童觀眾賽、美國3×3獎、英國麥克米倫獎、中國金風車國際青年插畫家等國際獎項肯定。首部繪本《今天Today is the day》獲選為2022波隆那拉加茲獎的一百本好書。
