Arts Atlas In Conversation Series… Meet Yan Huang

The Arts Atlas “In Conversation Series” aims to encourage and inspire people across the arts sector by giving individuals the opportunity to share and talk about their creative professions. The series is about sharing uplifting stories during these unprecedented times.

This week we are excited to launch the first conversation with Yan Huang.

Tell us about yourself.

I was born in Xiamen China, moved to Melbourne in 1990. I’ve always wanted to be an artist since I was a child; I went on to have a fine arts degree and 20 years of international automotive design career.

Life come full circle, I’m now settling into regional Victoria to be an artist, inspired by the surrounding nature and life experience, I made sculpture objects that has a different take on the everyday objects with unique material, interpretations and though provoking narrative.

Tell us about your practice and what inspires you?

“Inspired by nature and the joy of living, I recreate the beauty I see and feel in life. To create is like breathing to me; it makes me happy and feeling content.”

What has been the most exciting part so far in your creative journey?

Seeing the cars I’ve design driving down the road, enjoying the objects and environment I’ve created.

What impact has COVID had on your creative process?

The best way to enjoy my creation is to experience it – touch and seat on it, doing what its design for. COVID made all these in-person experience impossible.

Do you have an online presence where we can follow you?
