Huang Yin

Chinese, b. 1972


In 1997, Huang Yin graduated from the Oil Department of Sichuan Fine Arts Academy in Chongqing. Being brought up under the red banner, like many other Chinese contemporary artists from the 1970s, Huang Yin went through enormous changes of China's historical cross-sections. Huang Yin recalls its history and represents them through her artworks not through Mao but some specific scenes and props. They include, banners, slogans, campaigns, large-scale iron, etc. Huang Yin's artworks, at first glance, are purely colourful, playful and cartoony. As we further understand the artist's background and culture cultivation, we know her artworks are symbolic, conceptual and narrative. The iconic symbol of Huang Yin's paintings are often a single or a group of little boys worn in blue trousers, white shirts, and red scarves; typical image during the Mao era. Occasionally, little girls were seen too, likely her self-reflection.

Huang Yin's painting, "As a fleeting wave, youth passes" was awarded by The National Art Museum of China in 1997. Her work "Spring Comes and Goes" won a bronze at the 9th National Art Exhibition held by National Art Museum in 1999.

Huang Yin has participated over 50 solo and group exhibitions nationally and globally in China, Hong Kong, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Australia and the USA from 1997 through 2013. Huang Yin's artworks has been shortlisted and showcased at the Alumni of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute Art Exhibition held at The Suzhou Art Museum in May - June, 2013. The show featured oil works created by outstanding alumni from class of 1992 - 2012.

Had an auction record of HK$217,836 fetched at Poly Auction, Beijing in 2013.​
