Wen-Chi was born and raised in Taiwan and has lived in New York since the 1990's. She has been involved in many creative activities such as painting, film, theater, literature, performance art, music and fashion. She is also a trained holistic medicine practitioner with 14 years of experience working as a licensed acupuncturist and Reiki Master.
Painting and music has been Wen-Chi's main medium for embracing the light of her spirit. Her diverse backgrounds bring a unique perspective and expression to her paintings. For Wen-Chi, art is a spiritual transaction. Her inspiration derives from mystical studies and experience in Eastern philosophy, meditation, and Shamanic worldview, which have shaped her personal, spiritual and artistic life.
With her boundlessly vivid imagination, Wen-Chi utilizes surrealistic dream-like images, internal organs, abstract visionary patterns and Chinese calligraphy to create a conversation with the metaphysical realm where all things are possible and connected. Her art is a journey inwards to furthest reaches of the human body, mind, and soul, to open a new understanding of our shared divine consciousness. It is to be enjoyed as a visual feast as well as a self-realizing tool ~ a mirror and life force that empowers personal catharsis and awakening.
In recent years, Wen-Chi has shifted her artistic expression from the canvas to the visionary experience of multi-dimensional journeying and consciousness expansion through shamanic medicine, music and meditation.
Wen-Chi's paintings were featured in "At the Edge" art megazine 2011 and 2013 issues, and "The New York Optimist" online magazine 2012 June issue.
