Chinese-Canadian contemporary artist Yan Xiaojing, whose work embraces her sense of having a hybrid identity, is based in Markham, Ontario.
Deeply vested in her cultural heritage and its representation, Yan’s practice explores and interprets that legacy, in particular China’s ancient myths, folklore, and philosophies.
Her investigations delve into the meaning of spirituality and metamorphoses, as well as other questions about being and becoming, art and nature, art and science, nature and existence.
Hermes Shanghai Maison has showcased her work (flying horse) in their boutique windows.
Currently, her work is being shown at Gallery 456 in New York.
