Jin Riloing was born in Tumen, Jilin province in China in 1962. He entered the first studio of the oil painting department in The Chinese Central Academy of Fine Arts in 1982. During his studies, Jin worked hard to improve and master his skills and abilities. At the same time, he started to look for an artistic approach that would allow him to fully express his talent and personality.

 

After investigating the national traditional art treasure, the Dunhuang Grottoes murals, Jin decided to explore the expressiveness of painting. He created oil paintings that have a sense of music and a style of freehand brushwork. This particular style was the catalyst, the primary reason he started getting more and more attention.

 

Jin taught at and got a doctor degree in two art institutes in Korea in 1996. With broader exposure to modern art, he began to further explore the formal aesthetics in painting, including the use of acrylic to present the richness of color, strokes, and texture - the more implicit and abstract language, and the more delicate, subtle feeling that has inherent cultural meaning.

 

On this basis, Jin moved forward to the mixed media and installation art, worked in the field of modern design art, pursued contemporaneity, and showed his international vision and variety of skills. Jin Rilong is currently a professor and doctoral advisor at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.
