About me
My name is Kaitlyn Malloy and I am a painter who will be graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art in May 2015 with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. 
I was recently awarded a two month artist residency at the Pantocrator gallery in Shanghai, China. This is an exciting opportunity for me to network with other artist around the world and to produce a new body of work. This will be an incredible experience for me as an artist because I have never left the country before. I think it will definitely influence my future body of work. The architecture, people, animals, scenery will definitely be different from what I am used to.

About the Pantocrator Gallery 
The Pantocrator gallery is a space located in Shanghai, China for discussion of contemporary art. They encourage and contemplate art of the present and of our time. This gallery wants to aid the bridge between Western and Chinese art by emerging art quality. For more information please visit their website
This will also be an incredible experience for me as an artist because I have never left the country and China is the most extreme. I think it will definitely influence my future body of work. The architecture, people, animals, scenery will definitely be different from what I am used to. 

Your’e Role:

I am thrilled that I got accepted into this residency, but my financial situation is the only thing that is in my way. You can help make my dream come true by funding my project. In exchange for backing my project you will receive rewards ranging from small sketches to full sized commission paintings.

Risks and challenges

Going to a new country is a scary and exciting experience but also a rewarding one. I have never been outside the United States and I think this is a rare opportunity for me to learn about China. I will probably be in culture shock when I arrive in Shanghai but that is part of the adventure.

I will have two months to adjust into the Pantocrator’s gallery space and create a new body of work. During the final week of the residency I will be showing my work and have a press release sent out.

As an artist I have to take this risk of exploring and experiencing new things to strengthen my ideas about my art. I will surely be questioning my self the entire time, but I think that is a healthy way to make art. I never settle on one idea too long when I start to investigate further into the content of my work. This process is necessary, especially when traveling abroad. Everything I bring to China will be demolished and re-molded into new paintings. I am excited and ready to go!
