Born in China in 1969, Shi Jinsong now is working and living in Wuhan and Beijing. He studied at Hubei Academy of Fine Arts in China where he majored in sculpture and mastered an array of traditional styles and techniques. His practice includes sculptures, installations, paintings, and experimental acting performances. Through these art forms, he attends to transience and substance in our daily life and searches redemption by its philological implications. Shi’s works in reference to ancient Chinese mythologies and folklores as well reveal the attempt to improve the value of an emerging system.
