David Jien: New Works

September 24, 2014

A suite of new drawings sees David Jien exploring a bizarre world of fine-art museum appreciation and elevated anatomy. Jien received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in 2009. As a first generation Taiwanese-American, a veteran tagger who spent time in jail, and a recent art school graduate, Jien utilizes the unique facts and experiences of his life as raw material for the fantastic stories and characters that are represented in his work. "I make most of my work in my dojo, unless I can't be in my dogo, I travel quite a bit; it's not uncommon to find me working at some random dojo." - David Jien (excerpt from Walk The Line: The Art of Drawing)
