Xie Caomin grew up in China but has been living and working in the United States since 1999. Caomin works in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, and digital media. Growing up under the strict Chinese
Communist regime, Caomin was among the first generation of artists to touch upon contemporary topics and themes in his work. He frequently depicts Western and non-Western motifs to create multidimensional art.
Caomin states that, “For me, art practice is to constantly enter the worlds of the others to see myself.” He teaches studio art at Clayton State University.
