Lin Aojie Biography

Lin Aojie was born in Guangzhou in 1986 and graduated from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts, Oil Painting Department in 2010. He currently lives and works in Guangzhou. Presented through video, photography, painting, text, etc., Lin has a delicate record of the trivial details of daily life or deliberately planned events with strongly improvisatory and humorous images. By beating around the bush he tries to question, ridicule and criticise the capitalist mode of production, artist's survival predicament and the relationship between artists and other art professionals.
