Chicago-based artist Aobo Wang straddles the line between art, design, and photography. Raised in China, Aobo obtained her bachelor’s degree in Photography from the Communication University of China. She received her second bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Columbia College in Chicago. She enjoys experiencing the difference between the East and the West. In her travels, she found life was transient and often with sudden changes; it is a fact that the ideas and the process of artworks have faded in time or were destroyed by political considerations. No matter how much one wanted it, the work never stayed the same. As an artist, instead of trying to hold onto what was impossible to keep, she lets her work grow by asking people to participate and add their own efforts.
