Dr. Yanyun Chen (1986, Singapore) is an artist. She runs a charcoal-based drawing, animation and installation practice, and her works respond to writing — fictional and philosophical — as well as aesthetic traditions and techniques. She researches cultural wounds, and tells auto-fictional stories of dowry traditions, hereditary scars, and dressing up in nudity. She was presented with the People’s Choice Award at the President’s Young Talents 2018 exhibition at Singapore Art Museum and was the winner of the 2019 ArtOutreach IMPART Visual Artist Award.
Her dissertation “Skinning Nudity” received a Summa Cum Laude from the European Graduate School, Philosophy, Art, and Critical Thought doctoral programme. She is a full-time lecturer in the Arts & Humanities division of Yale-NUS College in Singapore, the founder of illustration and animation studio Piplatchka, and the managing partner of publishing house Delere Press LLP. She lives and works in Singapore.
