Charles Santoso (Chao) is a concept artist and illustrator currently living in Sydney, Australia.
He loves drawing very little things in a very little journal and dreams about funny, wondrous stories. Charles gathers inspiration from the curiosities he happens upon every day going about his travels. He then weaves these narrative threads together to create his whimsical dreamscapes.
During the day he works at Animal Logic as a concept artist/art director and has been involved in various animated feature film and tv commercial projects.
Charles Santoso’s work has been exhibited in Sydney and also internationally in North America and France.
