Chen Duxi is a Beijing, China-based artist. He was born in Chengdu, Sichuan in 1983.


Chen mostly demonstrates his works through the concept of “Threads”. He has been long focused on motions of objects and multi-dimensional expression of the time. His works involves Chinese heritage elements of nature and people, but through the hands of a Neo-tradition. Chen draws influences from infinite intimacy with crude state-of-the-nature. He tempts to capture the subtle stability of “Qi” (air; aura), extracts the hidden “Shi” (grandeur; momentum) from the nature, further exploring the intangible source of the crowning touch for his artistic inspiration. For example, when a bird flies, we see the motions of a bird-like shape, but we also experience an internally emotionalized impact. Chen is embodying that intrinsic feeling within. He believes that creations of visualization could open up numerous doors that show us a world beyond conventional perceptions.


Chen graduated from BFA program at Chengdu Academy of Fine Art in 2006, and then graduated from Oil Painting Advanced Course at China Central Academy of Fine Arts in 2008.
