Bilin Chen is a multimedia artist and designer based in NYC. She graduated with a BA degree in New Media Art from Shanghai Theater Academy, China, in 2017 and received her MFA degree in Digital Interactive Art from Pratt Institute, the USA, in 2019. Before enrolling at Pratt, Bilin received an MFA scholarship supporting her study at Pratt Institute. Trained in classical painting from age 6 to 17 and started digitally creating art after high school, she continues to find her unique voice as an artist and a designer in capturing the formless feelings and nuanced emotions from her creation and exploration. Her work mainly focuses on humans and society by exploring the relationship between her inner world - the spiritual world, and the outer world- the community. As a human and a female, she would spend her whole life navigating who she is by observing the world and involving herself in the outer world, experiencing and sensing it. She exhibited her immersive interactive work Who Are You? I am me. in Pablo's Birthday Gallery, lower Manhattan, in 2019. In the same year, her Photography Rouge was selected and displayed in What A Woman exhibition in Artosino Gallery, midtown Manhattan. Based on her bicultural and interdisciplinary experience, including painting, drawing, theater, design, art, technology, and philosophy, different media and materials provide various possibilities for her to express her thoughts appropriately.
