In April 2017, he presents his first solo exhibition in New York - Chen Dongfan: You Know My Name, Not My Story at Fou Gallery.
Dongfan described his work as "not about dreams, but rather a kind of reality, a kind of memory, a mental world, the intersection between sensation and illusion, which requires time to find a way in." He is interested in how images are transmitted over time and what are the information and the sensations people received through transmission; nevertheless, he still pays special attention to the materialistic aspect of paintings, experimenting with the texture through layers of paint and welcoming diverse outcomes of it.
