ArtMonaco - Yin Kim


Yin Kim was born in Kashgar, Chinese Turkestan. He began his career painting Communist political slogans on walls in China during the Cultural Revolution without comprehending their significance. After completing art school in Xian, he travelled around the world exhibiting his work, eventually settling in Paris in 1994 to live and work.

He uses western techniques to paint the many facets of China and uses his own feelings and perspective to portray Chinese old-fashioned society. Yin Kim says, 'I am first an artist and second Chinese.' Click on the link for more information.

They are very good. It's amazing to think that Gail and I were in MC last year, and looking round the 2011 Art Monaco show.
