SHI JING

Born 1971 in Dehong, Yunnan Province, Shi Jing graduated from the Yunnan Art Institute in Kunming in 1992. Shi Jing currently lives and works in Beijing. He has developed into one of the most recognized and observed newcomers in the young Chinese painter scene. In 2004, his works were shown for the first time in the West during the ART COLOGNE fair, while as of June 2005, he is included in the exhibition “Mahjong” at the Kunsthalle Bern. The artist is creating seemingly monochrome paintings which – through skilful handling of the brush – move into the figurative.
