Zhiyong Jing says he paints “goals, our bodies and absurd realities.” The Beijing-based artist takes a shocking method to scale in his work, typically rendering distant figures on small canvases. The impact is cinematic, additional underscored by the artist’s occasional use of popular culture references and characters.
Jing is a graduate of the Tianjin Academy of High quality Arts, and his constant output over the previous few years is filled with each humor and, in some instances, a bit extra disturbing fare. A plan is splattered with blood because it passes over a forest; unusual meet-ups happen on the moon. All of it speaks to each a reverence for goals and a command of the shape from the artist.
