Building bridges based on the belief that film becomes art only when its materials are as inexpensive as pencil & paper. Cine Pobre Film Festival is the 100% cartel-free intersection of culture and capabilities.
currently Assistant Professor of Digital Arts, Department of Creative Arts, Stetson University, Florida. He received his Master of Fine Arts in New Media from Pennsylvania State University and his Bachelor of Arts in Animation from China Central Academy of Fine Arts. His practice concentrates on new media art, 3D animation, computer games, illustration and comic art, traditional animation, and 3D motion graphics. Unlike the single narrative storytelling techniques used in traditional animations to amuse and entertain audiences, Chen's animations have nonlinear narratives that engage viewers to critically reflect on social and ethical issues. Through animation based on art practice, by projecting his thoughts and personal experience on distorted stories, Chen propose new insights and compels audiences to think about the unvarnished beauty and ugliness of the world. By bringing awareness of social problems and ethical issues, Chen uses his art to help his audience envision a world where every sentient being can live in harmony.
