Tian Gan is born and raised in Chongqing, China. She moved to Stockholm, Sweden in 2010 and started her company in 2012, working as a freelance printmaker and graphic designer.
Tian works primarily with relief printing. Simply put, after she makes an initial pencil sketch, she carves the design into the block, inks it with a roller, then prints it onto the paper. All her illustrations are carved and printed by hand in her studio on Lidingö.
Tian is inspired by interesting people and their stories. She likes paradoxes and things that seem just a little out of place. Making illustrations is her way of exploring the city where she lives.
