Chenguang Ren, also known as MC Yan, is a pioneering Hip Hop and graffiti/street artist from Hong Kong. While studying art in France, Yan was exposed to graffiti and Hip Hop culture. Back in HK in 1993 he formed the seminal Hip Hop group LMF, which broke barriers in HK and Asia with their outspoken, raw lyrics and style. The group broke up in 2003 and reformed in 2009. Since then MC Yan has worked extensively on his art and design projects – most notably for Feiyue, Clot and Nike, through his musical and artistic partnership with pop star Edison Chen.
