Yunfei Ren ("yoon-fay"; he/him) works in painting, installation, and photography. His art practice centers on immigrant experience, exploring the complexity of identity and belonging in the context of history, citizenship and queerness. Ren seeks to connect the past with the present by constructing conceptual "portals" which transport the viewer across time, encouraging contemplation about our contemporary existence. His work has been exhibited at The Guardhouse, part of FOR-SITE at Fort Mason (2024), de Young Museum (2023, 2020), Stanford University (2022), Chinese Historical Society Museum (2021), and has been featured in the Washington Post.
