Lin Feng

Developing a talent for art at a very young age, Lin Feng started her career in Shijiazhuang, China. Her cultural history was filled with tradition, allowing her to view traditional Chinese art every step of the way. Her experience grew and grew with her building blocks consisting of many different forms of art, ranging from drawings and paintings, then moving towards sculptures. She became fascinated with nature and the colors it produces, therefore applying it to her core themes of art. She was exposed to traditional sculpture in China, gaining knowledge of different objects and resources. Her interest in art cultivated and developed as she opted to do a BA in Art, then progressing to her MA course at the Royal College of Art.


She has a sense of accomplishment when people start to notice what nature and life have to offer and the beauty of it. Due to her particular interest, she is an active environmentalist. Some of the work here is from the earlier stages of her career, and some have been done more recently this year. The creation of her work is derived from life and nature. Some of the earliest ones were based on realistic sculptures and paintings, with a primary focus on the techniques of sculpture. Occasionally she does some wall painting work for students, as her steady hand is an attribute. In school, she did a lot of pottery, hand-made courses, etc. Some innovations were made in the later period, and some works were tried with other materials. Her format of resin is due to the vibrant colors that mimic the beauty of nature. Being self-motivated she is continuously driven, as art is her passion.

She currently resides in London as a student and a part-time language teacher.

I created this using the Zbrush platform. It's a koi fish that was inspired in honor of the Sigmund Freud museum. I felt the need for experimental transformation in the world of art.

I incorporated my profession as a tattoo artist into this project. I drew stencils of critically endangered animals on the arm and tattoed the arm using a coil machined tattoo gun. The idea behind this was the new generation of tattoo sleeves compared to current ordinary themes such as religion, fantasy, and traditional.

Wood

These are the 5 elements of life according to Chinese Taoism. It is used to describe the interactions and relationships between things. This piece involves the individual. The world is changing according to these elements as they are important to life. The fire symbolizes human destruction, wood symbolizes deforestation, as we humans need land and capitalism to thrive, water symbolizes our forever decreasing drinking waters, earth symbolizes damage to our ecosystems, and lastly the greed for resources. This is an instrumental piece as I use each image as a representation of what we are responsible for. I used images of the human body as we are responsible for the changes of the five elements.
