Wang Yin graduated from Central Academy of Drama. In 1990, he had resided in art village in Yuan Ming Yuan Park, then moved to Song Zhuang in 1998 to begin his work as a professional artist. From ’85 New Wave to Yuan Ming Yuan Park and Song Zhuang, Wang Yin experienced the modern process of Chinese painting. Furthermore, he is always engaged on theater and had cooperated with director Lin Zhaohua on Hamlet in 1989 and with director Zhang Yimou on Turandot in 1996. In 2007, he worked again with Lin Zhaohua and Tan Dun on Assassin. He also worked on various kinds of operas such as HuangMei opera, Yue opera and Huai opera etc.

As with most artists of his age, his painting experience from boyhood undoubtedly grew out of the Soviet painting tradition. Additionally, the time he spent at university coincided with the arrival of Western humanist trends and fine arts theories that have created a "shock" in the society. This allowed him to be fully exposed to the avant-garde trends of thought from the West, especially those in fine arts and theatre. At that time in Beijing, the new trend in art was to replace the Soviet and Cultural Revolution painting experiences with Western avant-garde art and in this way challenge the tradition of art academies and the powerful official ideology in painting.

Wang Yin always attempts to make his paintings more provocative by capturing painting conceptions growing on daily life and his understanding of painting. “Painting should actually challenge the established paradigms; it should put to the test what perception renders stiff and systematic, the ‘good manners’ and ‘good taste’ of those pictures hung in living rooms and exhibits.” Different from conventional painters, Wang Yin has continued his interest in examing the inner logic of Chinese painting in the course of modernity. He introduces his personal feeling and thoughts into his understanding of Chinese modern painting. In other words, he internalizes the outside influence into a sort of purely embodied experience in order to sort out the inner logic.

The “conservative” and “old-fashioned” images from Wang Yin’s paintings seem to have distanced his painting practice from the development of Chinese contemporary art. Very few artists look backwards like him. Wang Yin once cited the sentence from A Dream in Red Chamber, “it's better to quote an old saying than to compose a new one”, which alludes to the fact that his way of working is somehow close to that of traditional Chinese intellectuals: “I interpret the classics, the classics interpret me”. After the turbulence of 1980s, at the time when history and culture, tradition and reality had been re-evaluated, Wang Yin found a way of his own, that is, review the tradition from the headstream of Chinese modern painting and use a simple and plain visual expression to convey his understanding on the relationship of tradition and present.

This exhibition will include more than 30 pieces of Wang Yin’s creation since 2003. Following the 2007 solo exhibition in German, this will be another grand presentation of Wang Yin’s work. The exhibition will be on view at Iberia Center for Contemporary Art from September 26th 2009 to November 22nd 2009.
