Yongqi Tang was born in Shenzhen, China in 1997. She received a Bachelor of Art Honor Degree in Painting and Drawing from the University of Washington in 2019. She is also a current MFA candidate at the University of Washington. During her stay in Seattle, Yongqi was significantly influenced by the systematic difference between Chinese and American culture. Becoming more interested in public issues, she perceived painting as an empirical method to examine her identity and roles in both personal and public space.
