Sian Zeng founded her award-winning wallpaper design studio in 2010. Renowned for creating exquisite wallpapers derived from original artwork, Sian Zeng wall decor is characterised by a dream-like quality which marries Oriental and Western aesthetics.
Born in China, Sian Zeng spent her formative years in Hungary where her love of drawing flourished, enchanted by the whimsical illustrations in the children's folktale books she grew up with.
Later moving to the UK to study Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, she was encouraged to experiment with different media. This led to her creating a magnetic wallpaper which went on to win the Grand Prize in the Etsy Global Design Awards 2019.
Today, from her London studio, Sian and her team experiment with digital technologies alongside traditional techniques. Central to Sian Zeng designs are the hand-painted elements. These are authentically reproduced onto high-quality paper at 100% scale, making every brushstroke visible.
All the illustrations in Sian Zeng products capture a style of painting that’s quiet, meditative and considered, observing natural phenomena with a high attention to detail.
