Born 1981, China
Song Yuan Yuan was born in Shen Yang where he still lives and works today. He graduated from the Photography Department of Lun Xun Academy of Fine Arts in 2005.
After studying photography, Song Yuanyuan settled on becoming a painter. Photography though plays a major part in his creative process as it influences his painting and contributes to his ability to perceive and process images. Passing through different types of painting styles and techniques, he has now developed a mature, confident and individual approach to composition and colour. Lived-in interiors from our daily life are the main subject of his recent paintings all depicted after humans have left them. Often his paintings feature a picture within a picture through use of multiple images.
Like many young artists of his generation, Song Yuanyuan uses traditional realist painting techniques whilst choosing subject matters and concepts that are more contemporary.
