About the Artist:
Helice Wen was born in ShenZhen, China and is currently living and working in San Francisco, USA. She Graduated in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Having spent the initial years of her art career illustrating children’s books, Wen is now focusing her attention on exhibiting within the New Contemporary gallery scene. Her deeply personal work has an autobiographical flavour, and through the female characters she portrays, Wen explores those emotions or aspects of life which she finds difficult to express or share with others in any other way. It is by way of the painted surface that Helice allows us to open up a dialogue with her about the conflicts and vulnerabilities we all share as human beings. At times these conversations may have a certain sadness or dark tone to them, but Wen is often inclined to add her own hint of optimism.
