Gigi Chen’s work creates an aesthetic that combines her training as a traditional animator and painter, along with her love of the techniques of Old Masters. Entrenched in the art of storytelling, the work pulls together her love of contemporary idioms of cartooning, photo realism, texture and design to produce works that coalesce into Love, Craft and Fun.
Born in Guang Dong, China and raised in New York, Gigi first exhibited her work in New York at Deitch Projects as part of the ARTSTAR reality-based television program. Gigi’s exhibition credits also include the Queens Museum of Art, Superfine! Art Fair and Deep Space Gallery.
