Kevin Chin Biography

Kevin Chin's disorienting paintings connect distant lands and cross cultural references, to question how we find our place in the world. Having migrated from one colonised country to another, he reframes landscape conventions, to interrogate how land rights and belonging are constantly contested. His fragmented compositions also speak to the pluralism of globalisation, focusing on issues of structural inequality.

Chin's paintings are grandiose in scale, referencing the art institution, to redress the continued exclusion of minority groups. They are atmospheric, inviting us to discover treasures of detail amidst sweeping vistas. Expressive brushwork and masterful use of colour convey longing, with warmth and humour. These paintings reclaim the oil-on-linen canon for the historically marginalised, to revise grand narratives in contemporary art.

Kevin Chin is the winner of the 2018 Albany Art Prize (WA), the winner of the 2015 Bayside Prize (Melbourne), and runner-up at the 2014 Redland Award (Brisbane). He has exhibited widely around Australia, as well as solo exhibitions in the United States (Teton Artlab, Jackson 2017), Japan (Youkobo Artspace, Tokyo 2014), and Singapore (Art Stage Singapore, 2014).

Chin has been awarded multiple grants from the Australia Council, City of Melbourne, Ian Potter Cultural Trust, and National Association for the Visual Arts, and has served on the assessment panel for Creative Victoria. He has been featured on the cover of Art Collector, and numerous times in Art Monthly and The Age. Institutional collections include Artbank, Royal Automotive Club of Victoria, City of Albany, Bayside City, Nillumbik Shire, and La Trobe University Museum of Art.
