Bio

Li Jin

Born 1958 in Tianjin, China. Lives and works in Tianjin. 

From the spontaneous and lustful to the controlled and restricted. From pleasurable hedonism to everyday reality, at times brutal. The Chinese artist Li Jin effortlessly moves between contrasting themes. And it is with the same ease that Li Jin master the expressions of the two main techniques of traditional Chinese painting, from Gongbi schools detailed expression to the flowing spontaneity of Shui Mo. With great humor and, at times, equivocal motives Li Jin transit tradition into the present.
