YANG SHAOBIN (1963)


Yang Shaobin was born in 1963 in Tangshan, Hebei Province, China. He graduated from Hebei Polytechnic University in China in 1991. In the early 1990s, he moved to Beijing to join an avant-garde art group. Shaobin attempts to evoke discomfort and pain in his viewers in order to create a sense of social consciousness and political commentary in his work. His use of the color red symbolizes human vitality, capitalist greed, and the iconography of the Cultural Revolution.


Yang Shaobin currently lives and works in Beijing, China.
