Born in Beijing, Chongjin Chen is a Visual Artist based in Eindhoven. She studied at Central Academy of Fine Art and China University of Geosciences in Beijing. In 2021 she received her MA degree from Design Academy Eindhoven. Through various mediums, her works use auto-ethnographical research to explore notions like micro-history, daily habits and the ambivalence within. The outcomes appear to be spontaneous, cheerful, and accessible.
