Daniel Chen

Daniel Chen is a painter based in San Francisco, California. Daniel grew up flying between California and his parents native Taiwan. Chen has received a BFA from the Academy of Art and an MFA from CCA. His current body of work explores how technology has changed the way people view images. As more and more visual recall is synchronized with pixelated images on our screens, personal memories and visual recall are more reliant upon the photos we take on our phones. As our visual language becomes more intertwined with technology, our memories become more reliant through the pixelated filter. The paintings explore the way this technology has affected our visual language and shapes the way we think and remember the past.
