Have a Nice Day by Jennis Li Cheng Tien b.1983 in Tainan (Taiwan), lives and works in Berlin.
Have a Nice Day is an ongoing project since August 2010. It is a series of collages containing random pictures with anonymous people sourced from the internet. The found images are reprocessed with digital manipulations to the amount that the features become unrecognizable, forming fictive characters. Sometimes the pictures are treated to assimilate paintings.
With this unique series of Have a Nice Day which very unlike her other art practices in the public space, the artist chose to digitally fuses her interests in paintings and contemporary street fashion.  Having worked as an interactive media designer for 5 years, Jennis Li Cheng Tien followed her creative instinct 3 years ago in pursuit of another artistic career. She relocated to Germany in 2008 to study Public Art and New Artistic Strategies in the Bauhaus University in Weimar. Since then, she started her artistic practice with a focus in the public space.
