Experience at SAIC

SAIC has the greatest art collection, most talented people and helpful, friendly staff. Since I came to the United States, SAIC has opened my mind and helped me to break through the barriers.


Personal Statement

My wearable artwork concentrates on a rethinking of people and the contemporary world from different perspectives. After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), I will be working as a design assistant for Michael Kors and planning to start my own brand in five years.


Current Interests

I was highly impact by Nick Cave’s sound suits, the idea of wearable art, wearing something more than clothing. I will take the idea of making wearable art through my lifelong career.
