Wanlin Jiang is a an artist and printmaker based in London. She graduated from the Royal College of Art with a degree in Visual Communication in 2023. Wanlin initially gained attention with her collaborative project Plant Whisper, followed by a series called Plant Secrets. Her work focuses on the study of plants explored through the discipline of Visual Communication as a bridge to create meaningful connections between humans and nature.

She works across different media, ranging from installations, sculptures, sound design, people’s theatre, experimental videos, etchings, paintings, publications and more. She has received widespread press, multiple awards, and has painting and sculptural work in numerous private collections. She is co-founder of Plant Whisper Studio.


Nature and plants are my inspiration, mentors, confidants and soul mates. If you ask me what I really want to do before my death, I wouldn’t create any artwork. I just want to lie in a bed of plants in peace, listening deeply.

In my mind, creating artwork is not the most important drive. I just choose art as a medium to encounter the plants, to have a conversation, to grow, to become a better human and for us to live in harmony together.
