Zhou Jin Hua
China 1978

BACK

Born in Sichuan in 1978, young Zhou Jinhua has had numerous solo exhibitions globally at his early age. Graduated from the Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts Academy of Fine Arts, Zhou Jinhua also teaches at the Art Department at Beihai Institute. Since 2002, Zhou began to paint miniature people, ideas first generated from his interest in photography, particularly, taking aerial images. Through his lens, these bird’s eye views allow him to look at the world from a different perspective. He observes human beings as a group or as an individual, their daily activities, living environments, social status and life attitudes. They are equally interesting and inspiring. Further to this observation is something deeper, Zhou Jinhua intends to bring a more philosophical message from his paintings – social transformation and phenomenon. His paintings are very carefully thought-out and very often absurd and impressive. His colour palette is very rich, colourful yet sympathetic. Zhou Jinhua’s paintings portray the style of post-modern realism, his works are like looking at comic books, narrating the fascinating dramas. 

 

Zhou Jinhua is a young and talented artist, famous for painting extremely meticulous and distinctive aerial view images.  

 

Zhou Jinhua achieved the Sovereign Asia Art Prize in Hong Kong in 2007.   

 

Zhou also won a recognized recommendation award at the Shanghai Art Expo young artists’ exhibition in Shanghai in 2006.   

 

Has an auction record price of HK$504,000 set at Poly International for “Where was it from”.  

 

Zhou was featured on the front cover of Asian Art News magazine- Volume 19.  

 

His artworks have been exhibited in major cities including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Luxembourg, Berlin, etc.  

 

Zhou’s artworks are widely collected by international galleries and private collectors including Guangdong Art Museum (China), White Rabbit Collection, (Sydney), Yuz Museum (Indonesia) and University of Mannheim (Germany).
