Galen Chen is a Taiwanese London-based visual artist who primarily works on paintings. His expressive and lushly seductive painting explores the intertwining identity debates he and  his country face, dissolving and reassembling his political surroundings in vivid colours and  

brushstrokes. His works are broadly inspired by social incidents and historically significant  moments, often with a touch of satire sprinkled on top.

    Besides, he worked on a wide range of illustrations and commercial design commissions. His clients include state-running institutions, therapy clinics, publishers, restaurants and bistros, clothing select shops and more.

    He is also one of the columnists at Junction Issue, a Taiwanese-running online art magazine. Topics about his articles include reviews of the exhibitions in galleries and museums across London and the UK. (refer to "Writings" section)
