Nelson Wu is a pixel artist and illustrator based in Toronto. He is currently working in the video game and entertainment industry. Nelson’s experiences travelling all over Asia have inspired many of his artworks. Many artworks are based around city architecture and food design. These artworks are a reflection of those experiences; many contained as a frozen memory in the form of looping animations.

He is currently pursuing ambitious projects such as making his own artbooks, animations and is currently developing his own indie game titled Yukyo Station.


My work focuses on translating ideas to visual language. Consisting of environments, prop design, character design, and animation. 

Previous work include places such as the Canadian Government, CBC Arts, Cococucumber, Class101, Yostar, Yowza Animation, Paristreizelab, and WayForward.
