Born in Shanghai, she is currently studying MA Fine Art at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London. Inspired by her own body, emotions and experience, she always tries to explore the intimate and confrontational relationship between the individual and the external world through various mediums, including painting, performance, interactive installation and moving image, etc.

In the past few years, the theme of my paintings is mostly related to mountains, rivers, earth and seas. I have explored various mediums, materials and methods to express my passion and fear of nature. This kind of fear always dominates me and my creative career, which makes me have a nameless awe of life itself.

When I was deep in the deserted snow mountain or uninhabited primeval forest, I often sneer at my inability and innocence intension of describing the beauty of nature. I have engraved all these feelings in my works which are most 60cm wide and 120cm high, because in my perspective, these rectangular paintings are not only like a door connecting me with nature, rather a mirror reflecting the unique romance and loneliness of artists themselves.
