Intro
Dongyi Wu was born and raised in Bengbu and then she moved to Xiamen, China. She completed her undergraduate study at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology. After finished her graduate study at Rochester Institute of Technology, then she continued to explore her art at Rochester as a studio resident. Now she is currently living and working in San Antonio, US. Her works have been continually shown in America, China and Europe. Dongyi was finalists for the Lydon Emerging Artist Program (LEAP) in 2019 and ENJOIA'T 2017 Contemporary Jewellery Award in Spain. Dongyi was chosen to speak at the 48th annual Society of North American Goldsmiths conference in Chicago as an Early Career Artist in 2019. Her works are featured in the AUTOR Magazine #6: The Beauty Issue.
Inspired by the subconscious, my jewelry art often influenced by psychology and surrealist art. I like to express particular types of emotions of feelings by narrating life scene or details. I believe that motivation of expressing is more important than the purpose of expressing. For me, rather than solving problems, it is more important to raise questions in the process of expressing emotions. 
Moreover, I especially have interest in the relationship between jewelry pieces and human bodies. I believe human bodies not only provide jewelry pieces with a place but also an essential part of art pieces. I enjoy the interaction between art pieces with emotions or actions delivering by human bodies.
