Xiong Wenyun Biography

Xiong Wenyun is a Beijing based artist who explores colour and its effects through painting, photography and multimedia works. Her early projects documented Tibetan huts draped with colourful Bhuddist prayer flags and painted doors as a means of accenting cultural connection and evironmental conflicts. Her work is also influenced by pop culture and anime, as apparent in Kong Kong, a prosthesis for her feelings towards childless-ness and a conduit for the artist's will to animate. Her Dislocation series combines two techniques of Jimo and Japanese colourful rock paintings into refined paintings that evoke Tibetan folk art and a minimalist abstraction.
