Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

"Trained in China, Shi Xinning’s (b. 1969 Liaoning Province, China) paintings are influenced by both social realism and European styles. Using the authoritative qualities of both, Shi embarks on history painting with a twist. Taking his imagery from iconic press photos, Shi’s canvases faithfully represent the world as we know it: the Yalta Conference in familiar 40s sepia tone, the Queen Mum in carriage emblazoned in newspaper black and white. It’s only on second glance that Shi’s alterations become evident. Nestled between Churchill and FDR and conversing happily with royalty, Mao takes his place amongst the great leaders of the 20th century." - Saatchi Gallery website: https://www.saatchigallery.com/artists/shi_xinning.htm

Shi Xinning (born 1969, in Liaoning Province, China) is a painter based in Beijing.

Influenced by both social realism and European styles, he specialises in historical paintings that insert Mao Zedong into iconic social and political photos of the 20th century - such as the Yalta Conference, the HUAC hearings, and a state procession of the British Queen Mother.
