Yan Xinyue Biography

Yan Xinyue (b.1992) is a Chinese artist who currently lives and works in Shanghai. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Art Antwerp (Belgium) with a MFA in painting in 2018. Yan's work portrays the tension in everyday life in the context of rapid urban development. She manipulates objects and subjects into different painterly forms–reality and fantasy are mixed on the same canvas, and the dynamic and the tranquil are blended–revealing the conflict between being a part of society and being an individual. The irony and humour in her paintings invite viewers to escape the solemnity of reality and enter a universe of imagination and possibilities.
