Zila — known as Eirlysie online — is a
Chinese-Canadian illustrator based in Calgary. She uses vivid colours and surreal
lighting to create supernatural depictions of fashion and the body.
"Every Lunar New Year since moving to Canada, we call our
in China. My parents worked very hard to adapt to this new environment. It’s moving to see
them talk freely in their native tongue, laughing through a video call with my grandparents,
my uncles and aunts and all my cousins.”
