HUI Xin

HUI Xin was born in 1977 in Xinjiang, China and graduated from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute in 2003. He now lives and works between Beijing and Chongqing in China. One of the few known Chinese artists to use the airbrushing technique, Hui Xin has chosen this technique to produce the superflat effect of an advertising, graphic-like poster. His work is distinctive in its hyper-realistic images of Oriental origin or traditional Chinese motifs, such as peonies or animals from the Zodiac signs, but presented in a kitsch-like and artificial or surrealistic fashion; with colours and compositions that are instantly attractive, bright and loud. A similar juxtaposition is in the auspicious symbolisms associated with the featured motifs in Chinese culture and the artist’s message of materialism, worldly lusts and desires.
