About me…

 

Mengfan Bai (b.1994, China) received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York, and her BFA in oil painting from Sichuan Conservatory of Music, Chengdu, China. She lives and works in New York City.

Bai’s artistic practice investigates the silent yet tenacious force of globalization and its homogeniza- tion of urban landscapes. Her paintings stem from the growing difficulties in identifying buildings and sites solely through form in contemporary cities, especially as they are further “re-structured” by digital screens. Bai’s work continuously magnifies and reexamines this indistinguishability, gently shifting our perceptions of reality.
