Peijun’s unique style is characterized by the transformation of urban landscapes into surreal dreamscapes. She masterfully integrates signature elements such as clouds, eyes, and dandelions into these scenes. These symbols, while familiar in their own right, take on a new life in Peijun’s work as they are recontextualized beyond their surface aesthetic representation.


The surreal quality of her work is further enhanced by her innovative process that fuses photography, object art, and illustration. This blend of disciplines results in images that are both powerful and delicate.


Peijun’s art is not just about visual appeal; it’s an invitation to the viewer to engage their imagination and interpret the artwork and the space it occupies. Through her work, Peijun hopes to inspire viewers to see beyond the ordinary and explore the extraordinary.
