Nalok.Lok, penname of Kwan Wai-Lok, was born in Hong Kong and is a committee member of the Hong Kong Society of Illustrators. He graduated from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with a Master degree in Design and was awarded a scholarship to study for a Master degree in Visual Arts offered by the Latvian Academy of Arts, University of Latvia.

Nalok.Lok has launched a series of dark picture books in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan. He breaks the tradition and creates dark picture books showing the dark side of human nature. The stories are in the fashion of fairy tales but the plot and the ending are so unexpected that the readers are impressed and shocked. The stories attempt to engage his readers to know the dark side of the real world and learn how to deal with it.

Nalok.Lok is highly recognized and has won several awards. His picture book, The Moment While Jumping Off, won the First Runner-up of 2018 ACG Illustration New Star Award and later successfully received the government animation support fund to produce “Jumping Off” into an animation. The animation gained the Certificate of Merit of The Best Animation (Start-up) Awards. In 2019, he won the Top Ten Young Artists Awards at the 2019 Youth Artists Festival.

In recent years, in addition to continuing to create picture books, he has promoted crossover activities with clients/brands, including Dragonfly and Wacom. He has partnered with NGO such as Soical Welfare Department, The Salvation Army and Suicide Prevention Services to develop illustration work. He is also committed to nurturing talents by conducting illustration workshops.
