Aowen Kitaika Jin - London-based British Chinese Artist

Aowen's Art

I call my art “Microsocial Art”. By telling ordinary people's stories in my artworks, I create new insights into the contemporary society we inhabit. For me, art is a tool for social studies. It provides me with the perfect means to explore and witness other lives, and the ideal medium to communicate my critical thinking, which challenges a variety of social issues.
