Shijing Shen’s practice provides an assessment of Western aesthetics. Influenced by experimental Chinese ink painting, manmade nature is the main inspiration for the artist’s work.
He takes the intangible concept of beauty with the solidified notion of texture and finds a connection between the body and the universe – a relationship that is increasingly complex and subjective.
Shen holds a BA in Photography from Nanjing Normal University and an MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art.
