Tianyu Ren is an observer who was born in China in 1997. She always focused on daily life when she was a child. Then in high school, she choose study painting at the Fine Arts School Affiliated to China Central Academy of Fine Arts to learn how to record her own feelings by drawings. During this period of time, she really enjoy expressing her thought through different material, especially in the aspect that how to make a conversation with an audience through creation. So, as an undergraduate, she choose study Visual Communication at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology to focus on how to communicate. But follow the deep study with this major, she found that she spend more time on the visual outcome rather than the thought she really want to talk about. Then she decided to come to Royal College of Art.
Then through studying at RCA, the creation of visual communications is the medium through which she record and express herself on the journey of exploration. She work across animation, illustration, sound and graphics.
Feelings drive her forward, push her to think and help her create a connection with the audience. At that time her experiments are the visualisation of her thoughts, and the work is also the visualisation of the connection between her and the audience.
