Yan Bing
Chinese, b. 1980
Follow

Chinese-born artist Yan Bing’s work is inspired by early memories of his agrarian upbringing. Incorporating animal skin textures and earthy tones of terracotta and wheat, his oil paintings are a nostalgic ode to the disappearing rural Chinese landscape. Bing also uses organic materials such as dirt, silk, cow skin, and fur, as well as farm tools, in previous works—a reference to the Italian Arte Povera movement, which emphasized using unconventional materials. Abstract and meditative, the pieces seem to harken back to an earlier, bucolic time. “I would rather go back to the age of innocence,” Bing says.
