An ongoing series of risograph card prints created by Genie Liang during the pandemic. These miniature scenes tell stories from distant memories and landscapes in soft pastels and bold fluorescent colours. Each print was created by layering 4 inks in a process called risography and was printed by hand in Toronto Canada, Tokyo Japan and Los Angeles USA. Every month for the last 3 years, Genie has designed a Vista as a part of her exploration of pushing the boundaries of risography printing and narrative illustrations. Now in its 4th year, the series has amassed over 30 individual scenes to be immersed in.


The body is a motion, a transformation and a metamorphosis. This is a story of reincarnation as told by magical girl iconography. At the start of 2020, Genie started a series of ink and digital paintings expressing themes of girlhood and hope. This year, Singapore-based risograph studio, Knuckles & Notch worked with them to complete the series and publish the finished collection as a risograph art book. The book features 15 new illustrations printed in vibrant fluorescent riso ink in a complex 6-colour process. The limited publication debuted at Singapore Art Book Fair 2023 and have been on Genie’s book tour this summer.

A Cat’s Day Book Signing

In addition to the risograph works, Genie will also be available to sign copies of their latest graphic novel, A Cat’s Day. It is a fantasy slice-of-life story on time, work and cats; told in 174 pages and published last fall by Shortbox Comics from the UK. A capsule collection of A Cat’s Day merchandise will also be available at the signing.
