Mew was born in China and has studied abroad in Japan and the U.S. She works with oil and acrylic painting, watercolor, digital art and time-based mediums. Mew’s artworks deal with subjects of mental health, transience, loneliness, identity, imaginary friend, and self-care, drawing inspiration from traditional East Asian art, literature, pop-culture, as well as her own experience. She developed a sense of alienation and disconnect through her travels and study-abroad experience. It was this feeling of belonging to nowhere that provided inspiration and encouraged Mew to continue her art practice. Her sense of detachment has taught her to focus inward on her thoughts and energies of her mind at present. She does not want to deliberately please others, nor does she expect everyone to appreciate her works or her concepts, but she believes that there is always someone who can feel the resonance in her works.
