Chenlin Cai

Chenlin Cai 蔡陈林, Born in Fujian in 1984, now lives in Beijing and Philadelphia. Cai received his MFA from two of the renowned universities in fine arts. The Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Cai immerses his works in the conflict of these two different art cultures, and the art environments did the opposite. He made no compromise; following only his instinct and vision, combining the best of his traditional training as a classical artist and his unorthodox use of paint on non-traditional materials and surfaces, experimenting with multi-media expression.

Cai had successfully created his unique painting style using inside-bottle painting craft, cellular structure oil painting texture and X-ray image to interpret landscape. The unique artistic style and techniques of his work have made his works collected by many Chinese, American and Greece collectors including the Copelouzos Family Art Museum of Contemporary Arts in Athens, Greece.
