Silken Chu (She/ Her)
GET TO KNOW SILKEN.
- When you’re not modelling, what else are you up to?
I’ve been an artist my whole life, but recently I’ve started focusing more on painting. I used to shy away from it, because it’s so much more challenging than illustration, but I’m trying to push myself more artistically and try new things. I really love portraits in particular!
- What is your favourite film or book?
I was raised on fantasy and scifi books! It’s hard to choose a favourite, but I have a nostalgic attachment to Tunnel in the Sky by Robert A. Heinlein.
- What is one thing you have always wanted to learn or know how to do?
I’ve always wanted to learn how to give a tattoo. Even though I don’t have any myself, I like the art of traditional tattoos and have just always been interested in that world.
- Is there anything you wished would come back in (or leave and never return) in fashion?
This is probably controversial, but I think early 2000’s popcorn shirts should make a comeback.
