About the Artwork:
“A STRUCTURE stars the fabled Bowerbird. The male song bird can spend up to a year collecting twigs, berries and small objects in order to build beautiful and elaborate nests, all in the hopes of attracting a mate. In this piece, the Bowerbird has created an elaborate offering for his potential mate within an abandoned building.” – Gigi Chen
About the Artist:
Gigi Chen’s work creates an aesthetic that combines her training as a traditional animator and painter, along with her love of the techniques of Old Masters. Entrenched in the art of storytelling, the work pulls together her love of contemporary idioms of cartooning, photo realism, texture and design to produce works that coalesce into Love, Craft and Fun.
Born in Guang Dong, China and raised in New York, Gigi’s exhibition credits include Stone Sparrow Gallery, Superfine! Art Fair, Deep Space Gallery and Antler Gallery.
