Jin Rilong entered the first studio of department of oil painting in the Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, in 1982. During his study, Jin worked hard to master and improve his skills and abilities, meanwhile, started to look for an artistic approach that would allow him to give full play to his talent and personality.

 

Jin is an artist from Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in Jilin Province. 1982, he attained Gold Award in the First National Exhibition of Minority Fine Arts with his work "Grandma" and shot to fame. After investigating the national traditional art treasure, the Dunhuang Grottoes murals, he decided to explore the expressiveness of painting. He created oil paintings that have a sense of music and a style of freehand brushwork and attracted more attention.

 

Jin taught and got a doctoral 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 culture meaning. On this basis, he 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 varieties of skills. Jin is a professor and doctoral advisor at the Central Academy of Fine Art now.
