Biography

CHEN LI (Beijing, 1988)

Chen Li graduated at the Fine Arts Academy of Rome in 2012.

She now lives and works in Turin.

Chen’s paintings represent mainly floral abstract compositions developing though into faces, animals and informal shapes, using the colors in a very original way.

The recurring tones of green and orange make the subjects almost suspended in a floating and mysterious dimension, which transports the viewers into the artist’s universe.

The influence of the Chinese tradition is evident, but the artist is able to re-elaborate it with a sense of contemporaneity and originality, involving us in her intimate world, that could even become our.
