YunFen Wang

I am a painter and graduated from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. I like to find inspiration in my daily life. For someone who is a bit introverted and shy like me, it is easy to feel embarrassed by anyone’s gaze or actions. This is why I create the Interpreting Discomfort series. Interestingly, when I shared this view with others, I realized that it was not the only problem I encountered. Everyone feels different degrees of discomfort for others’ excessive care or gaze. So I started to focus on how these uncomfortable feelings are formed, and what kind of people or things can cause this situation.
