Intro
Dongyi Wu was born and raised in Bengbu and then she moved to Xiamen, China. she completed her undergraduate study of the major of jewelry art design at 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. Her works have been continually shown in America, China and Europe. The recent exhibition shown her works is the Schmuck 2018. Her recent achievement is the Finalist at Enjoia’t 2017 Student Category. Her works are featured in the AUTOR Magazine #5- The Reciprocity, which is the latest publication shown her pieces. 
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.
