Sijia Luo (羅絲佳)was born in China and currently resides in Japan. She majored in animation at the Film-Video-Animation School of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in China and then continued her studies at the Department of Animation in Tokyo University of the Arts Graduate School of Film and New Media where she will receive her master's degree in 2019. Her creations are now focused on animation and illustration but she occasionally enjoys making music for her own films.
Luo debuted in animation filmmaking complete with sound at age 10 employing MS Paint and Windows Movie Maker. She later encountered her greatest influence -- the filmmaker Norman McLaren -- which directed her to pursue animation at a university. Her experiment in animation style ranges from collage, 2D, 3D,mix with live action, to stop-motion. These endeavors have led her to seek liberation from stereotypical visual language to expression through animated movement, scene structures and music.
