WANG Chen Studio Link

Born in 1991, WANG Chen received a BFA in Painting and Printmaking from Virginia Commonwealth University (2014) and an MFA in Photography from the Rochester Institute of Technology (2018).  WANG has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at Fotografiska Museum in Stockholm, Sweden, Roswell Museum, New Mexico, Lauren Powell Project, Los Angeles, The Immigrant Artist Biennial, NYC, Alfred University, NY, and Crosstown Art Center in Memphis.  WANG’s fellowships, awards, and residencies include the  New York Foundation for the Arts Artist Fellowship (Interdisciplinary), MacDowell Fellowship at MCLA, Vermont Studio Center, NARS Artist Foundation in Brooklyn, and the Roswell Artists in Residence Program.  WANG is currently Assistant Professor of Art at Penn State, PA.

WANG Chen’s works find their origin in traditional painting and drawing practices-which go on to become technologically augmented sculpture and time-based installations.  WANG’s IRL works are brought into digital spaces, which become stand alone video works or are incorporated into other multimedia sculpture.  Escapist and seemingly magical digital environments are constructed from start to finish by the artist in a self-contained studio practice.
