Jin Shan 金闪
Jin Shan 金闪 (b.1976, Zhejiang province, China) currently lives and works
in Hangzhou, China.
Jin Shan’s art practice mainly revolves around painting and video. The
focus of his practice has moved recently from performance art to 2D
works. Different from a conventional academic style, Ou Ning uses
his eclectic, creative observations and subtle expression of physical
instincts to create a unique visual language. Jin draws inspiration
from a wide range of subjects including the Fluxus movement, Kafka’s
novels, Chinese history, Buddhist murals, and puns encountered
in daily life. The work has a rough and free style and is highly
recognisable. In a unique visual language, he explores the connection
between personal emotions and the history of painting traditions.
