Jinbin CHEN

CHEN Jinbin was born in Guangdong, China in 1994. He received his MFA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts in 2021 and BFA from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague in 2019. He currently lives and works in Oslo, Norway. Chen’s diluted color palette creates an environment that accommodates his subjects in themes of vulnerability, honesty, and comfort. His delineation of figures embraces the freedom of becoming in the non-binary gender dispositions. Unfolding the liminal space of encounter, Chen’s work explores a language of intimacy that excludes the sexually explicit, and rather, paints his own vernacular of desire that absorbs a viewer’s gaze. Bridging the personal and impersonal, Chen’s practice revolves around topics on gender temperament, sexuality, abjection, in-betweeness, identification, and differentiation.
