An art practitioner and educator, Shen Jiaqi studied painting from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 2010, and Visual Art and Drama education in the National Institute of Education in 2015. She is currently pursuing her Masters in Fine Arts from Lasalle College of the Arts. Having teaching art in secondary schools for the past eight years, it was only recent years that she decided to pursue her original goal of becoming a full-time artist.


Inspired by her experiences in her social and living environments, Shen creates works that speaks about various social issues that she encounters. Using imagery from nature and everyday life, she seeks to provide a window of quiet reflection for the viewer, and to invite conversation regarding similar ideas and experiences.
