Born in Taiwan and grew up in Thailand with a western education, Eleen Lin is a third culture kid inhabiting in non-places of generic cities. In the age of cultural cannibalism where everything is brought together and rearranged to formulate new identities, she reiterates folklores and classical literatures into contemporized cross-cultural narratives.
Lin studied at Slade School of Fine Art, UK (BA 2005), and Yale School of Art (MFA, 2008).
Her work has been exhibited in Guangdong Museum of Art, China; Queens Museum of Art, NY; Gwangju Museum of Art, Korea; and galleries throughout Austria, Thailand, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States.
Lin has been awarded with Elizabeth Canfield Hicks Award, Sanyu Scholarships, and has participated with NYFA Immigrant Artist Projects, Fountainhead residency as well as the AIM program from the Bronx Museum of Art.
