I am an artist and graphic designer. After working for over ten years for institutions in the culture and art sector such as the Barbican Centre and the Institute of Contemporary Arts and then the leading arts publisher Phaidon, I set up my design and art studio in 2015. I split my time between design commissions and producing my own artists books.
With a background in textiles and sculpture, through her MA at Royal college of art. Jing has created objects and performances to challenge the unsaid rules and invite her audiences to reflect on alienation. Jing shall continue exploring such themes with her multidisciplinary approach.
For the last six months, I have been a strange tourist in Munich. I came here to work in a studio and had not so much time to visit it properly. But I partly came in Germany because I was interested in its specific creative approach: it’s precision and rigorousity. In it’s system culture in a way. And indeed it’s a very intellectual society, ruled by color codes and order. It was definitely funny to see that these things are visible in many daily aspects of life.
Or maybe it’s just me wanting to see them... Very soon, I will move to London - where I would like to do some freelance work, in product, furniture and space design.
