YU CHI CHIEN
Growing up in Taiwan with jeweler parents, Yu-Chi Chien was encouraged to develop his own interests in art from early childhood. After receiving the BFA degree of Industrial Design, he went to pursue his master of Metals and Jewelry Design at RIT. Yu-Chi’s work has been exhibited in the US, Europe, and Asia. He is currently residing and building up his studio in NYC.
Influenced by my design background, I strive for distinctive characteristics and practical spirit in my work. As an artist, I draw inspiration from every story I encounter and capture minor details in my life. I enjoy reflecting on human being and explore different possibilities through my work. I express ideas not only in jewelry form but also in sculpture and daily objects.
