Liao Qian 廖倩


b. 1998 in Guangzhou, China
based in New York, homeland of the Lenape

I’m a multitalented artist. I practice visual art, billingual writing and dance.

Investigating the powers of image-making and non-verbal communication is where my passion lands. Why talk if we can sing instead?

Proud survivor claiming space on earth.

Formerly known as Joss Liao.
