Su Xinping (Chinese)
Born 1960 in Jining City, Inner Mongolia
Lives and works in Beijing, China
Su Xinping is known for his paintings and lithographic prints. The figures portrayed in his paintings, whether they show respect, critique or pity, always reveal an underlying compassion in his work. In revealing the relationship between man and society, the works suggest a certain suspension, or even anxiety. His views come more from the perspective of fate, than from a moral perspective.
Following completion of his study at Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 1989, Su Xinping began to produce intimate black-and-white depictions of the social transformations occurring during the decade of open policy promoted by Deng Xiaoping. His works expressed a deep concern for the issues surrounding isolation and lack of communication among the people at this time.
Su Xinping has an international reputation with solo exhibitions and artworks in the collection of prestigious museums worldwide.
