Guo Jin 郭晋 (b.1964)

Guo Jin was born in 1964 in Chengdu, in Sichuan Province, and attended the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, graduating from the oil painting department in 1990. His paintings frequently take children as his subject matter in a juxtaposition of youth with China's own development, and idealism lost. After graduating in the early '90s, he showed modestly within China, significantly in Guangzhou Biennale's 1992 oil painting exhibition, in which many of his Sichuan peers also showed works. Since then, as art institutions and infrastructure have grown within China, he has participated in an increasing number of shows, often with his brother, the artist Guo Wei. His bold use of colour and skill at creating silk-screen-like texture in oil have garnered him the attention of many gallerists and collectors. He lives and works in Chongqing and Beijing.

郭晋于1964年生于四川成都,就读于四川美术学院油画系,1990年毕业。他的作品经常以儿童为主题,用青春来映射中国本身的发展和渐渐丧失的理想主义。90年代初毕业以后,他在国内参加了多次展览,比较引人瞩目的包括于多为和他同年代的四川画家一起参与的1992广州双年展。随着中国基础设施和艺术教育的发展,郭晋和他的哥哥郭伟一起参与了越来越多的展览。他油画中大胆的色彩和绢印一般的质地为他赢得了很多画廊和收藏家的关注。郭晋目前在北京和重庆两地往返。
