Charles Santoso (Chao) is a concept artist and illustrator currently living in Sydney, Australia.

Charles gathers inspiration from the curiosities he happens upon every day while going about his travels and weaves them together to create his whimsical narrative dreamscapes. Charles Santoso’s work has been exhibited in Sydney and also internationally in North America and France.

During the day he works at Animal Logic as a concept artist/art director working on various animated feature film and television projects including:
