Guo Jin was born in 1964 in Chengdu, China. A graduate of Szechuan Academy of Fine Arts in 1990, he participated in countless successful solo and group exhibitions in China, South East Asia, USA and Europe.
His paintings of cherubic children in costume and play are easily recognizable and have become a signature for his works. A prevalent theme for Guo Jin’s paintings is the “reflection and contemplation of man’s naiveté” while the children “represent the essence of idealism that we possessed but were probably lost after”. His most recent solo exhibition entitled “Guo Jin’s Return” was held in 2008 at the Indonesia National Museum in Jakarta.
