Xiaoyi Chen is born in Chengdu, China in 1992.

She received her MA in photography from the London College of Communication in 2014 and was awarded the LCC/Photofusion Prize.

Chen’s work has been exhibited and published internationally; her most recent accomplishment is the inclusion of her work amongst the finalists for China’s prestigious Three Shadows Photography Award.

Chen’s practice is tied to a natural, oriental aesthetic, influenced by Western abstract art and oriental philosophy. Photography is a personal tool for Chen, used to question broad concepts that migrate from the personal to the philosophical realm.

Her recent work focuses on the combination of photography and printmaking, a combination of techniques used to explore beneath the surface of things by simplifying and abstracting; an approach aimed at reviving spiritual awareness and intuition before entering the symbolic nature of what we view.
