Introduction

Since the 1990s, his works have been widely shown both in China and abroad. His artwork covers a wide range of mediums - including painting, performance, video and installation. Shi Yong’s earliest artistic practice focused on revealing the subtlety of our reality and the inherent tension in the "system". At the end of the 1990s, Shi began focusing on the idea of Shanghai’s modernization transition under Chinese economic reform, which contributed to a discussion on globalization and consumption. Since 2006, with the piece Sleepwalking, he turned his attention to the art scene he had been involved, wondering how to provide a more rational perspective through his works. Shi Yong’s 2015 solo exhibition, Let All Potential Be Internally Resolved Using Beautiful Form, continues his reflection on his art practice, disclosing his intention to discuss art and politics under the seeming “abstract” in the future.  

Shi Yong was born in Shanghai in 1963. He graduated from Light Industrial School, Fine Arts Department. He resides and works in Shanghai. Shi Yong has exhibited widely since the early 1990's.
