• Ni Jun 倪军

    b.1963, Tianjin, China

    In 1979, Ni Jun became one of the first students of the High School of Central Academy of Fine Art, Beijing, after the Cultural Revolution. After studying in the studio of Yuan Yunfu at Central Academy of Arts and Crafts in 1989, he went to the U.S. and spent two years at the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University with Leon Goleb and Peter Stroud. He has held numerous one-man exhibitions, given lectures at art academies in China and the U.S. over the past three decades.


    Ni Jun is one of the Chinese artists who have the most philosophical speculations and theoretical accomplishments; his creations have brought people to the complexity of humanity and the profound mystery in nature, especially paying attention to the spirituality of the natural scenery, the tradition of Chinese culture and and elegant scenes of life, with his keen visual observation and leisurely brushstrokes, Ni Jun brings the modernity to his strong personal-style painterly paintings.
