Sena Kwon is an illustrator and comic artist from South Korea, currently living in Brooklyn, New York.
She communicates through detailed line drawings in continual curiosity of international myths, religious parables based on her childhood living in multiple cultures.
She pricks up her ears with her eyes wide open when hearing words of her interest: cinemas, feminism, spring prints (a.k.a. Shunga), and cats.
