Works and lives in Hangzhou, Chongqing, China.
"I hope to seek spiritual sublimity from the impoverishing of material expression, to unveil a visually invisible but spiritually existed reality behind the object image."
Yang Shibin was born in 1979 in Sichuan, China. He is a director of Zhejiang Artists Association and a member of the Chinese Artists Association, and currently works and lives in Chongqing and Hangzhou. Yang focuses on each individual figure in everyday life from a personal perspective in his works. Instead of presenting the reality, his rendering of themes goes beyond the subject of the painting to evoke the interality. Injecting his own artistic inspiration which flowered out in colour and texture, Yang’s paintings demonstrate the appeal of immaterial reality.
Yang Shibin’s works have been featured in The 7th National Art Exhibition, Hangzhou, 2022; The 9th Beijing International Art Biennale, China, Beijing, 2021; The 5th Chinese Oil Painting Exhibition, Chongqing, 2021. His works are in the collections of National Art Museum of China, Beijing; Art Museum of Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Chongqing; Nart Museum, Zhejiang; and Yongzhou Art Museum, Hunan.
