Lilian Darmono's artistic preoccupations (which she shares with life- and creative partner Mungo Horey)
lie in the realm of imaginary worlds and creatures/characters that inhabit them. Both sides of this coin –
the sunny/cute side and the dark/sinister one – fascinate her, as can be seen in her work.

She studied print and motion design at Swinburne National Institute of Design in Melbourne.
After working both as a fulltimer and a freelancer in Melbourne and Sydney, she moved to London
for a 2-year long period of working holiday. During this time, she's worked with studios in London,
Europe, and USA, such as Nexus, Superfad London, Anima Boutique, Sehsucht, Buck,
Panda Panther, Lobo, Elastic, and Agressive.
