Yiqi Chen 20
International student passionate about Photography and Art. I took up camera from the age of 14 and never put it down. My favorite thing is shooting with film and processing film in dark room. Also interested in all different forms or art, such as painting, sculpture and expanded media. Coming from China and having studied 3 years in America, I develop my own understanding about both eastern and western art with traditional or contemporary. Art has been an important component of my life for a long time. In Cleveland, I live next to the Cleveland Museum of Art and a botanical garden, and also close to Museum of contemporary Art. These places had great enriched my life here and helped me to learn more about art.
