“Taiwan Comics: Eli Lin x Pam Pam Liu” to be Presented at the 2024 MoCCA Arts Festival

Taiwanese artists Eli Lin (依萊) and Pam-Pam Liu are set to captivate audiences at the 2024 MoCCA Arts Festival, New York City’s largest independent comic and cartoon festival, scheduled for March 16-17.

Supported by the Taipei Cultural Center in New York, Taiwanese comic artists and illustrators have been showcasing their works at the “Taiwan Comics” table at the MoCCA Arts Festival since 2017, aiming to introduce innovative and diverse artworks to an international audience. Eli Lin and Pam-Pam Liu will represent Taiwan alongside 500+ creators featured at this year’s prestigious festival.

Eli Lin’s artworks are a testament to her mastery of skillful lines and vivid colors, incorporating elements of fashion, costume, and history into her creations. At the festival, Eli will present a variety of her works with a special focus on her latest zine, A Photo from the Past, which weaves together stories of Taiwan’s traditional clothing.

Pam-Pam Liu's works are characterized by her unique sense of humor and inspiration drawn from darkly absurdist fantasies to true-life stories. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to explore Pam-Pam's popular zines, including The Art of HateJumping through the HoopsBad Luck, and Oops! BO PO MO, among others, each sharing resonant narratives with readers in the US.

The MoCCA Arts Festival, which has been organized by the New York-based Society of Illustrators since 2002, draws over 9,000 attendees annually. The festival celebrates all genres of illustration through exhibitions and programs, featuring exhibiting artists displaying their work, award-winners speaking about their careers and artistic processes, and other featured artists conducting demos, lectures, and panels.

In addition to showcasing their works, Eli Lin and Pam-Pam Liu are prepared to offer unique caricature experiences at their MoCCA tables. Eli will sketch participants with her vibrant colors and beautiful lines, while Pam-Pam will transform them into protagonists of her iconic “No Future” three-panel comics.
