Intro
Zihan Yang was born and raised in Xi'an, China. Yang received her Bachelor of Arts in industrial design at Northwestern Polytechnical University (NWPU) in China and a Master of Fine Arts in jewelry at Savannah College of Art and Design in the United States. Now, she is pursuing her artistic career as an emerging artist in the United States.

Statement

The beauty of being human is not only facing the dark side of this inner world but more importantly how to bravely restrain and lock this darkness in the abyss.

Yang's work is driven by personal psychology and a fascination with the subconscious. She focuses on personal reflections and definitions of the darkness of human nature by using small repetitive components. Her studio practice expresses the complex and dark side of our nature tempered by the beauty of using desires to restrain and balance human desire.
 
The process of making echoes the process of self-examination. We can never fully know ourselves without constant reflection; When we think we must restrain the darkness of human nature, it becomes a kind of desire too, but it seems more positive.
