Fat Art – Bobby Chiu


The art of character developer, animator, and artist, Bobby Chiu, doesn’t contain a lot of fat people.  However, he does create a lot of fat animals and creatures, and his fat people are much like his other fat creations.  I have limited my fat art Pinterest boards to paintings of humans and humanoids.  Just my choice – I’m choosing fat art that more directly affects the views we have about fat people.

Bobby’s art career started at the age of two with a box of crayons and his family’s white living room walls. He got his first professional art job at the age of seventeen, designing Disney, Warner Bros., and Star Wars toys. Bobby has since won a number of awards for his independent work and is featured perennially in various juried art annuals and magazines. He presently works in concept and character design, teaches digital painting online at, publishes art books, and works on other top secret projects that we’re not allowed to talk about.

Chiu’s fat people tend to be short and round.  Mostly they are cute, but sometimes they have more than a touch of horror about them.

I wish there were more examples of Chiu’s fat art; because what there is out there is so f*cking imaginative.
