Je Shen was born in Jiangxi, China, in 1973. After completing his studies at Guangzhou art school, in 1993 he enrolled in Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. He graduated with full marks in 1998. Je Shen immediately showed himself to own talent, great technique, and a strong desire to create a new medium of artistic expression by fusing Oriental traditions with the teachings of distinguished 19th-century artists from America and Europe.
This melting pot of styles, impressions, and influences was fundamental in the development of an intense routine of art exhibitions. His first major art event took place in 2008, when the Museum of Guangzhou inaugurated a permanent solo exhibition for his works. Over the past years, he has taken part in more than 90 solo and collective expositions worldwide. Nowadays, Je Shen is regarded one of the most promising artists in the world of Asian contemporary art. By putting sophisticated and effective painting techniques to wise use, he captures viewers in a magnetic collision of lighting, optical illusions, and elegant brushstrokes. Magical floral atmospheres, where colour and three-dimensionality constantly guide viewers through a vortex of visions and emotions. The Chinese, Japanese, and Korean specialised press have all shown great interest in this young artist, who is widely considered as one of most fascinating contemporary artists of the past few years.
