Cindy Jian is a contemporary Chinese-American artist. She feels the most at home on the road and often works in several different places. Like a journal, she records her personal journey through her work. In 2017, she delved into painting as a way of life. Prior to that she worked in 3D as a public artist and furniture designer. Her abstract paintings draw inspiration from the movements, color, and emotions in her inner world. Her works are created through playing with unconventional tools as well as through collaborations with artists of other mediums or non-artists. The act of creation is a non-verbal dialogue in which anyone can participate. She revels in finding happy accidents and unexpected collisions in her process, but also strives to refine her technique and use of materials. She received her BFA and MA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and has completed short-term Painting programs at School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Columbia University. Recently she completed a two-month residency in China to delve more into her cultural identity and evolve her practice.
