Cindy Jian was born in a bustling cosmopolis in the south of China. Her family moved to Vancouver, BC, and then California when she was twelve. Being the daughter of a factory owner has made her acutely aware of the socioeconomic stratification that exists in society and she is compelled to explore this topic with her art. While studying at MICA, she was inspired to address the prominent class division in Baltimore’s neighborhoods at an urban scale. She graduated in 2013 with a BFA in Environmental Design and began a career in design and public art. She has designed science education exhibits at the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco and supported Morelab in making site-specific art installations to engage and enliven communities. Most recently, she has been investigating class divisions and her privilege through a series of paintings about her family and country of origin.
