BIOGRAPHY

Born in Taiwan and growing up in Thailand with a Western education, before emigrating to the United States, artist Eleen Lin has been shaped by her experience as a third culture kid. Her colorful body of work combines traditional styles and techniques with modern imagery, patterns and textures, reiterating folklore and classical literature into contemporized cross-cultural narratives. In her long-term, ongoing series, Mythopoeia, Lin takes on Herman Melville’s classic man vs. nature chronicle, Moby Dick with a surprising twist. Inspired by a series of mistranslations of the epic novel from English into Mandarin, she combines recognizable elements of Melville’s narrative with mythological references and allusions to historical and current events, cultural artifacts, and global politics.
