about the artist.
Chia Yu Joy Chi is a 18-year old artist currently studying at Phillips Exeter Academy. Having grown up in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and after taking a couple after-school art classes growing up, she quickly developed a love for experimentation with a variety of art mediums, and for communicating her world view through these forms of art.
Chi enjoys delving into dystopian and post-war literature, through Lois Lowry's The Giver Quartet and Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go., and the thin line between fact and fiction. Her work is thus an exploration of the world around her, as well as of her own identity.
