SHEN HUA

Shen Hua (沈桦) is a Chinese artist who works in painting, installation, and sculpture. Born in 1972, in Chongqing, Sichuan Province, Shen Hua still lives and works in his native city. In 1999, he graduated from the Fine Arts Department of the Southwest Normal University and the following year from the Oil Painting Department of the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. In 2008, he received a Master’s degree from the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute. His works often employ a solid command of medium to create a sense of social perspective, with a previous series of works focusing on the figures of migrant workers, employing motifs and techniques that bridged the gap from Chinese Social Realism to Rustic Realism. In 2007, Shen Hua won the bronze medal at the Today Art Student Annual Art Awards at the Today Art Museum (Beijing), and, in 2006, he was among the Top 30 Finalists at the Sovereign Asian Art Foundation (Hong Kong). His works have been featured in a number of group and solo exhibitions throughout Europe, Mainland China, and Hong Kong, including notable exhibitions like the Image of the Body (Chongqing), From the Countryside to the City (Hong Kong), Voice of the Unseen (Venice, Italy), and the 2010 Busan Biennale (South Korea).
