Xia Yi  嘉 苡  (based in Kuala Lumpur) is a photographer
and art director working across multiple genres of imagery taking
real life and turning them into her very own utopian universe. 
The little to no distinction between her personal, editorials and
commercial work is often carefully composed with a highly attuned
sense of colour and composition.

Her visual vocabulary is informed by her Malaysian upbringing
and looks closely at the social intricacies of life through themes
of multiculturalism, domesticity, nature and intimacy. Historical
references, internet culture, archival materials and found object
plays an important role to her research process.

In 2017, she briefly pursued her degree in Fashion Journalism
with University of the Arts London : Central Saint Martins
and since returning home, she has been actively involved behind
the scenes and participating in programmes and exhibitions.
