Who we are

About us

Studio Ding Yi was founded in August 2013 by Chinese artist and designer Ding Yi. In the beginning her idea was to record everyday life in Finland by painting. In 2014 she held her solo exhibition in Espoo, Finland.

Gradually Ding’s art started drawing the interest of Finnish people, who could associate their own experiences with her paintings. Ding launched her fashion accessory brand Ding’s Narrative House in 2014. DNH is a growing collection of design products inspired by Ding’s art. 

Among the wearable art design items are silk scarfs adorned by Ding’s artworks and jewellery made by Ding. The wearable art collection offers an alternative way to experience Ding’s art. This way you can feel and use Ding’s art in the form of design for everyday life. The concept is inspired from Scandinavian way of life.

The powerful shapes and gentle patterns of Ding’s painting originate from Chinese ink and pigments. The art is a reflection of how a Chinese artist feels about building her life in the western world. Some of Ding’s paintings represent a new style, Pomo pop, that she has developed herself. Pomo pop merges Chinese ink patterns and western pop art.
