Ce Chen is a self-promoted artist and illustrator. He was attracted by the natural heritage and cultural landscape to Cornwall. His works are mainly about landscape and genre sceneries. He still maintains a traditional manner of painting as well as a great appreciation in preciseness and well-organised composition. He was intrigued by how a particular landscape can be used to define an identity, and devoted to explore the symbolic power of landscapes. Through his explorations, he articulates the statement:

“It should be acknowledged that, everyone is capable to love, understand and respect a landscape, culture or people, just like every indigenous soul does.”
