Hongming took her Master Degree course of Printed textiles at the Royal College of Art. She focuses on exploring digital prints and materials surfaces. She discusses the relationship between nature and human, artificial and natural materials.
Hongming Shen is a textile designer who likes to explore a variety of materials and pays attention to the collision and contrast generated by different colours and textures. She is keen on applying materials to tell alternative stories of her heritage and Chinese culture.
Hongming is trying to find a peaceful corner during this journey much like a tiny drop of water, which can be involuntarily carried into the ocean by the current. So she is finding a space by which there is a harmony being created within the practice of her textiles, towards culture, the planet, and people.
