Senbo Yang (b. 1990) is an emerging artist. His site-specific works reveal the nuances present in nature by employing atypical pairings of contexts, mediums and materials. Born and raised in South China, Yang moved to Providence, RI to study landscape architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design, and later
relocated to NYC and then Berkeley, CA to pursue his design career.
Yang’s works include installation art, public art, ceramics and environmental art. In 2017, he was invited to be an Artist-in- Residence at I-Park Foundation, Inc. in Connecticut. There, Yang created his recent work “Drifting” (2017). Trained as a landscape architect and multidisciplinary artist, Yang uses architectural investigations as a means of revealing psychological, ecological, and sociological truths, especially regarding the relationship between humans and nature.
