In Yin Zhaoyang’s major works, images of characters obviously compose an important aspect of his creations. He is always questioning, he looks into the world, exploring people’s chances of survival; very violently ripping the cloak off of some practical ethics, allowing them to plainly reveal the true secrets of their respective physiognomy. Through these various forms of characters, not only can the understanding artist truly follow the inner heart, and interpret the cause of his incredible creations. But it is also particularly important to be able to glimpse at the residual body of these characters, which have suffered the marks of true injury, like a lingering nightmare. “Facade - Yin Zhaoyang” offers an exclusive review of the established young artist Yin Zhaoyang for art collectors and lovers. Essays by the renowned poet and critic Zhu Zhu review the artist’s early and recent art work; an internview between the curator Zhu Zhu and Yin Zhaoyang providing intimate clues about the artist’s life.

Zhou Chunya (1955 Chongqing) is best-known for his colorful “green dog” series of paintings. but he is also considered one of the country’s most talented painters of nature and rural scenes. His works is almost expressionist -- sometimes using jagged brush strokes and other times creating colorful, blurred sweeping landscapes. His canvases are often filled with figures left alone in the world or nature scenes devoid of humans. In recent years, he has begun to paint a series of portraits filled with sexual scenes in nature. He graduated from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts in 1982, and now lives in Chengdu.
