Born in China’s far-western province of Xinxiang (B. 1959, China), Yin Xin was only 7 years old when the Cultural Revolution in China began. The period of oppression & chaos that was to follow had a profound impact on the artist and he sought to take only qualifications from the social realism style he was driven into studying at Art College.
Several successful exhibitions, based on his ‘Opium’ & After the Masters’ series in Britain & Hong Kong have ensured critical acclaim. It is Yin Xin’s collection “Ballerinas” that has people mesmerised by the quiet but theatrical compositions, both male & female ballerinas are depicted on stage in a quasi-omniscient viewpoint. He now lives and works in Paris.
