Su Xinping

Born: 1960

Hometown: Jining City, Inner Mongolia

Lives and Works: Beijing

 

Born in Jining City of Inner Mongolia in 1960, Su Xinping was accepted into the Tianjin Academy of Fine Arts in 1979. Following completion of his studies at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing in 1989, Su began to produce intimate black-and-white depictions of the social transformations occurring during the decade of open policy promoted by Deng Xiaoping. His works expressed a deep concern for the issues surrounding isolation and the lack of communication among the people at this time.

Su on his more recent works:“My recent work is about two themes – the urban landscape series and the toasting series. In the urban landscape series I want to express the impact of urbanisation on people. In the toasting series I use irony to reveal issues of city life and the interaction of people – particularly in business and politics.”

His works have been collected by the British Museum, San Fransico MOMA, National Gallery of Victoria (Australia), Fukuoka Museum of Art (Japan) and National Art Museum of China.

He is currently Vice President (2014) of China's Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA).
