On View: Wen-ti Tsen’s “INSIDE/OUTSIDE: Portrait of Vivian Lee”

  • Pao Arts Center

Wen-ti Tsen is a painter and public artist.  He was born in China, lived in Paris and London before coming to the U.S. to study at Boston Museum School. Since the mid-1970s, he has been engaged in making art that explores cultural connections. It takes the forms of paintings and mix-media installations made in the studio; large-scale sculptural works in public places; and community art projects working with grass-root organizations.
