Chenxino was born in China in 1993. She studied Cartooon Animation at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hubei, China, and Illustration at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna. Her first book, La luce [The light], encapsulates her great passion and her love for drawing: picture books are for her "one of the purest and most beautiful kinds of art, like a lamp lighting up the darkness". Her style contaminates traditional Chinese painting with Western abstract art. Her works contain "the naive dreams of children”.
