CeCe Chen- Artist
木艮 / 根
Painter, ceramist and sculptor from Shanghai, China.
They say, don't do political work.
it cannot change a thing.
Don't waste your time,
don't get in trouble,
go look at something bigger.
Political art is boring,
I'm still young,
too young to get numb .
So I strive,
and I speak out.
