Gigi Chen was born in Guang Dong, China and raised in New York. Her work was first exhibited in New York at Deitch Projects as part of the ARTSTAR reality-based television program. Entrenched in the art of sto- rytelling, 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. Gigi’s exhibition credits also include the Queens Museum of Art, Superfine! Art Fair and Deep Space Gallery.
