Wan Yang was born in Changchun and is living and working in San Francisco. She believes art has the potential to inspire and empower, to shape lives and carve soon-to-be-trodden paths.
“We came to this earth without words, and we are born without knowing who we are. We grow our lives to seek the answer to “I am.” When we looked back and could see our own footsteps, tracing the path from long ago – where we came from all along, they both meet together at this single point: the end and the beginning. The physicality of making a painting, for me, is essentially in the subconscious creative process.”
