Eva Agus Artist and Illustrator

I am Eva Agus, a self-taught artist based in Oakland, California. Art is my meditative practice to explore my identity and process my end of life. I am a retired engineer who is disabled - a 5x survivor of Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma. I hold a doctorate in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley. I am a licensed Professional Civil Engineer in the State of California. 

My illustrations blend my technical training, high fashion visuals, and a fascination with Asian art traditions. I grew up in the Chinese community of Jakarta, Indonesia and hold a connection to the Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia and the Nusantara archipelago of Indonesia. The mediums I love include ink, batik and watercolor. 

I am grateful for your support of my art on Instagram and in my shop. If you're interested in working together, please feel free to reach out.

<3 Eva
