about Yi :
People around me call me Yi, my full name is Yi Chen Li. I consider myself a distinctive person, maybe for some people it calls weird. I am vegetarian, I do food collection ( dumpster diving, hitchhiking , I care about environment, animals, wealth inequality.
Since 2012, I’ve live in Europe, most of time was in France or Belgium, at first it was for studying, and afterward I had a promise with someone to live together in Paris, but it didn’t happen. I was alone and got a tough life. However, by that, I moved a lot, traveled a lot and experienced so much unforgettable moments that normal people probably never had. Also, that’s the inspiration of my drawings.
I am an introvert person, I don’t talk a lot, but I like to meditate, I want to become an artist who does something benefit the world. I am good at black and white delicate drawing, please take a look for them.
Now I am in Denmark, in a Yoga Retreat Center 30km from Copenhagen, I am volunteer here for some cleaning and farming jobs, in exchange of food, yoga classes, and accommodation. During the free time I draw , write and do some sculptures.
I can do :
1. Tattoo design
2. motion graphic
3. 2D animation
4. graphic design
5. handmade crafts
6. French-Chinese / Chinese-French translation
For short-term goal, I want to find a CDI jon in France.
For the long-term one is to have my own shop in Paris near Canal St. Martin. Find second-hand or old stuff to repair, to renew and sell it, give them a new life. I am in charge of making things beautiful and my partner is in charge of things related to mechanics.
Besides, helping young artists or poor people to have a exhibition place and to sell their paintings or craft works without asking anything for return is also what I want to do in the future.
Yoga, movie, meditation, camping, travel, languages
