Yian Chen is an artist based in London whose paintings have been exhibited in China and in England. He describes his artistic practice as primarily focusing on the translation of images in varying aspects, which include the material, memories, and cultural symbols.
In addition, Yian also explores the existence of life and its growing process from the perspectives of identity, emotion, and loneliness. Through painting, Yian maintains the emotional extension in different works while avoiding fixed narratives. He most often creates with oils and acrylics on canvas or wood.
