Ma Dan Chinese, b. 1985


Born in Yunnan, artist and painter Ma Dan is represented by Pellas Gallery. 


Ma Dan portrays a young child, with her back facing the viewer, absorbed by her surroundings in a dreamlike world. The series of vibrantly colored paintings appear almost like a storyline depicting a joyful childhood.

Ma captures a moment, where time is stopped in her paintings, allowing the viewer to reminisce about their childhood whilst engaging and indulging in the surrealist world she's created.


Ma Dan’s works have been exhibited in the United States, Taiwan, Beijing and other major international art fairs in the country and have been favored by collectors in all these places. Her solo exhibition will be opened at Amy Li Gallery in July, and her catalog will be published in Taiwan at the meantime.
