This November, Xiong Yanjun has joined Art+ Shanghai gallery as one of the represented artists.

“I am very glad to be able to represent Xiong Yanjun – a thinking artist who understands Chinese contemporary society and Chinese art scene in its full entirety and complexity, and moreover who is profoundly knowledgeable about the world’s art history and movements. In fact, this reflects in his oeuvre of works that possesses an incredible sense of dignity and serenity”, says the Founder and Art Director of Art+ Shanghai Gallery Ana Gonzalez.

Xiong Yanjun was born in the city of Liuan of Anhui province, China in 1977. He graduated from the Anhui Normal University and completed Master’s of Fine Arts in Nanjing University of Arts, Nanjing, China. Xiong is now teaching oil painting at the Anhui Normal University in Wuhu and works at his studio as a professional artist.
