Maggie Menghan Chen (b. 1998, Beijing) lives and works in London. She obtained her MA degree in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts following her BA degree in Art History at New York University.
Maggie Menghan Chen explores the growth and metamorphosis of life in her sculpture works. Sampling from flora and fauna, Chen creates surreal hybrids signifying transmutations of life energy. Recreating upon nature, she hopes to capture the underlying wisdom of the earth, unconcerned of the rational human mind. Chen also sees her work as metaphors for the human psyche. The ferocity of beasts and delicacy of flowers represent the struggle between aggression and sensitivity in the mind.
