Chen Lin

Chen Lin was born in the city of Changde, Hunan province in 1986. She has graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Printmaking from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Awarded with numerous scholarships during her studies, she has shown her works in Rotterdam, Holland in 2007, and participated in the Sino-Japanese Exchange Exhibition in 2007. In 2017, her works participated in Art Shenzhen, and group shows in Guiyang and Beijing. She debuted in Art+ Shanghai Gallery in the group exhibition “I Will Be Your Eyes II: Little Narratives” alongside other talented emerging artists and recent post-graduates from CAFA, Beijing.

Chen Lin is a bright representative of an emerging Chinese contemporary art scene. Her work deals with abstract, geometric and colorful. Through two- and three-dimensional shapes she attempts to reveal her life’s personal experiences. In her works, she retains the childlike candor and innocence. What best way to describe her works is in her own words: “things are complex, while my visual expression is straightforward and clear cut. I do not wish for my works to stay only in the dimension of the language of formality. I rather would like such simple and concise visual experiences to express people’s perceptions of all things.”
