Xinyi Cheng


    Xinyi Cheng (b. 1989, Wuhan, China) currently lives and works in Paris. In Cheng’s artistic practice, reflecting upon people’s life and playing with internal layers in the background, she carefully constructs scenes of interactions and intimacies. Those scenes mirror the characters’ inner world and further create a sensual experience for the viewers.

    Cheng studied at the Academy of Arts & Design at Tsinghua University and at the Maryland Institute College of Art. In 2019, Xinyi Cheng was awarded the Baloise Art Prize 2019 of Art Basel. From 2016 to 2017, she participated in the residency program at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in the Netherlands. In 2014, she participated in the Artist Residency program at Skowhegan, Maine.
