PearlSlug Studio is a zine and art book studio based in New York and Shanghai. PearlSlug is committed to discovering and helping young creators and artists, using books as a free carrier to materialise interesting or strange ideas. We hope to explore the possibilities of book production and creation through the art practice of PearlSlug studio, and to share the experience and fun of visual and text creation with more like-minded creators. PearlSlug is a studio rooted in the Simplified Chinese environment and Asian culture, but we are also eager to have close connections with creators in other cultures. We are fully aware that the production and distribution of books are a difficult task in the simplified Chinese world, but we still hope to keep gathering and helping young Chinese artists who have the same aspirations through our efforts.
