Yin Jun

Chinese, b. 1974

BACK

Born in Sichuan Province in 1974, Yin Jun received his first art lesson from his older brother. After just four years of painting experience, Yin began showing his work internationally. Many of his works has been exhibited at the 12th Beijing International Art Exposition, Art Amsterdam 2007, and Spoon Art Fair 2012.

Yin Jun's works often depict family units and siblings and have been wholeheartedly embraced by in­ternational collectors and admirers alike. In his intimate style, Yin Jun dynamically airs the consequences and ensu­ing emotions associated with our increasingly demanding and materialistic society. The oppressed and weak cry out through mesmerising childish faces, baring to others their dreams, frustrations, and hopes as they unleash

pent-up feelings. At first, onlookers cannot help but smile as they gaze at the comical, even satirical caricatures. Soon, a deeper meaning becomes apparent. Tears leap through the air and

stream from eyes; mouths open wide in phantasms of abundant expressions, potently conveying the painter's unvarnished, invaluable voice. 

  • Yin Jun is famous for painting crying babies with a strong visual effect. 
     

  • He paints babies with round heads, huge mouths, and large teardrops with expressive and ex­aggerating gestures.
     

  • Gained international attention by partici­pating art fairs in over 10 major cities worldwide. 
     

  • Participated in international exhibitions in Hong Kong, China, Korea, Taiwan, Swit­zerland, Netherlands, U.S., etc. 
     

  • Featured on BBC news "When art collect­ing can mean big money", August 2011. 
     

  • Had a highest record of US$48,912 in 2007 for Crying sold at Christie's, London.
