Yan Heng Biography

Yan Heng captures his personal experiences and social ideology in his work. Yan Heng’s work is inspired by his ordinary and simple everyday life, as he combines people, used ob-jects and incidents that surround him in his life. Combining old broken electronic objects and painting in one surface, his works reflect the artist’s critical stance on man’s excessive reli-ance on objects that invade the human cogni-tive domain. The Geometric series criticize the learning by rote that prioritizes conventional delivering of knowledge regardless of individ-ual leaning ability and compulsory education which sets aside individual ability and character and functions simply for authority and social maintenance. Through combining faces that run contradictory and unrelated to each other, the artist encourages us to transcend beyond the confined realm of standardized ways of thought, to multi-dimensional world of limit-less thinking.
