Sokkuan Tye’s Bio:

 

"I am someone who admires the harmonious and charming contradictions in people and things. "

 

Born in Malaysia, currently based in Singapore, Sokkuan works as a freelance illustrator.

As an artist (during her free time from commercial jobs), Sokkuan is known for her playful alter egos. Her “Sadako’s Unfashionable Fashion Diary – Not Really About Fashion” is a series of quirky illustrations and photographs that reimagine Sadako from The Ring.

 

Synopsis for Sadako's Diary: 

 

Everyone knows Sadako from The Ring (1998). With her long hair and white robe, the famous ghost emerges out of a wall. Everyone who has seen her dies from fright. 

 

But what if she only waited to make friends? 

 

It is from this angle that I first started "Sadako's Unfashionable Fashion Diary" three years ago. This project was partly to cure myself of my own Sadako trauma (I stopped watching horror movies after The Ring), and partly to do a creative rewrite of the ghost's scary image. I ended up with many series of experimental works in different media — illustrations, photography and video —which hopefully illuminate different facets of this character: one that is melancholy, quirky, playful and brave.
