Yiwen Jiang, born in Shanghai, China in September 1997. Began her artistic journey at the age of six by doodling from her imagination all the things that came to her mind. She grew attached to her drawing skills and she continued to practice constantly to cultivate her natural talent.
In 2019, she moved to the city of Bologna in Italy to pursue her artistic career. For the moment she is in her 2nd year of her studies as BA illustration in the Accademia di Belle Arte di Bologna.
Being away from her family, Yiwen has grown an important attachment with her pet Nembo, a cute little rabbit that keeps her company in her downtown studio apartment. It is Nembo who brings her joy and motivation to keep working towards her artistic goal.
The erotic and kinky fetish are an indispensable theme on her art. Yiwen wants to express the powerful passion behind these secret obsessions and reveal to the audience her own experiences.
Through her eyes these guilty pleasures possessed a hidden sweetness on them. Serving herself from the soft pastels aesthetics, she opens us the doors to her intimate world of delight.
Through this collection Yiwen aims to create a link between the Eastern world and the
classical-Western traditions and myths.
The Western culture is characterized by a host of artistic, philosophic, literary, and legal themes and traditions, historical records of Western culture in Europe begin with Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.
Taking a neoclassical approach, Yiwen exploits the symbolism and the stories in Greek mythology by transposing them into the animals on the Chinese zodiac.
This original conception as well as the erotic aesthetics of her art style accord a sense of uniqueness to this sensual collection.
