QiuChen Fan was born in Kunming, China. She received BFA in Drawing from Cleveland Institute of Art in 2015 with “Excellence in Drawing” award scholarship. After graduating from school, she started as a freelancer doing graphic design and illustration, while continued her art practice in home-based studio.
QiuChen mainly works on stretched canvas with acrylic paint in recent years. Being inspired by collage art and graphic design, she’s now focusing on a machine-like painting practice without stroke-marks. She considers art as a routine of meditation and the role of an artist as an observer. Through a way of exploring compatible contradictions, most of QiuChen’s works talk about people and relevant topics such as environment, contemporary life styles, social behaviors and consumer culture. QiuChen is currently living in US.
