Artist: Quentin Yang
Kailun Yang is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist who creates contemporary drawings and sculptures that explore themes of fear, loss, connection, and growth in intimate and social interactions. His works embrace conceptual strategies and abstract visions using natural materials and colors that exude feelings.
Kailun’s current drawings narrate safety and comfort in uncertainty. Through his drawings, he explores the coexistence of security and insecurity and uses playfulness to bring harmony and balance to incongruency.
Kailun earned his 2020 MFA at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Fiber and Material Studies. Kailun has shown his work in China, Japan, and the United States.
